Value of Fur Skins 

OTTAWA, Nov. Id. -The fur of the 
domestic cat is much bought OH the 
London market. Into what It turns 
after manipulation Is probably a trade 
secret According to a report fur- 
nished by Mr. F. M. Mussen. trade 
commissioner at Leeds, In the weekly 
report of the department of trade and 
commerce, no fewer than 120,452 cat 
skins were purchased in 1912, as 
against 122,478 in 1911. Many of these 
skins came from North America. In 
point of number, muskrat skins led, 
over five million of them being 
bought. Only 1223 silver fox skins 
were sold, the supply being stationary. 
Prices were high this year, and .Mr. 
Muiiiin notes that there was a strong 
demand for skunk, Ihe price of which 
udvtnced 20 per cent. Wolverine skins 
doubled in value.

•, J, S, MacLachlan, of Vic- 
toria, Appointed to New Of- 
fice j$\ Vancouver Island 
Through City Members, 

Vancouver Island Is at last to have 
a resident engineer of federal public 
works of Ita own, and when the appoint- 
ment that has been made is confirm- 
ed and ratified the first incumbent of 
the post will bo Mr. John S. MacLoohlan 
of Victoria, a young man who has had 
a wide experience in engineering in dif- 
ferent parts of the world, and has been 
associated with several of the greatest 
engineering concerns in England. 

The announcement of this fact should 
be particularly gratifying to Victorians, 
and to the residents of the Island gen- 
erally, inasmuch as it represents not 
merely what has long been recognized 
as well within the rights of the Island 
but the culmination of the strenuous 
efforts of the local member of parlia- 
ment, Mr. G. II. Barnard. In season 
and out of season, Mr. Barnard has im- 
pressed upon the Dominion government 
the necessity of having a reeident en- 
gineer for Vancouver Island, with head- 
quarters at Victoria, and he has at last 
attained success. 

Works In Yictoria 

It has long been admitted that the 
Importance of Victoria and the Island 
warranted some such measure of recog- 
nition on account of the tremendous 
amount of engineering work that hms 
taken place, or Is yet to take place. The 
harbor improvements alone, already 
provided for by the government, almost 
demand the .entire attention of an of- 
ficial, end with bla headquarters In 
another part of the province it was not 
to be expected that the result* would 
be the same as If the engineer in 
charge resided permanently In the cap-

LOS ANGELES, Cat, IB.— A plan 
has been Inaugurated to make a trans- 
continental motor highway through 
Death Valley. Where the bones of neons 
of lost prospectors and their burros' 
have been bleaching for a generation. 

Engineer O. K. Parker, commissioned 
by the Automobile Club of Southern 
California, left for the desert, today to 
begin the work of plaHntr guid'- posts 
along Its poorly defined roadways, 
crossing the 23,000 square miles of des- 
ert sands arc roads classed as good, 
Indifferent and bad, but most of them 

At internals of about se\ -ent.y-five 
miles water holes, moat of them poi- 
sonous, are found, and it will be a part 
of Mr. Parker's task to place signs in- 
forming the traveler how far it is to 
the nesct oasis.

porters of R. I* Richardson, Independ-

About One Million Barrels of 
Cement Were Imported Dur- 
ing Five Months of Reduced 
Tariff at Enhanced Cost, 

OTTAWA, Nov. 16. — Information 
which has become available shows that 
during the five months, June to Octo- 
ber, which the cement duty was re- 
duced, not unite a million barrels en- 
tered the country. The exact amount 
was 988, 3»3 barrels, and the value was 
11,328,937, or $1.31 j^r barrel. The con- 
sumption of cement in Canada this 
year was eight million barrels. Dur- 
ing the same period In 1811, the im- 
portation was 449,584 barrels, valued at 
8060,559, or $1.24 per barrel. American 
manufactures thus advanced the price 
by 10 cents per barrel. The effect has 
been most marked In the prairie prov- 
inces, the comparison working out thus: 

1811 (live months) — Manitoba, 4,491 
barrels; Saskatchewan, nil; Alberta, 309 
barrels; totnl 4,800 barrels. 

1911! (five months) — Manitoba, ]on,2R7 
barrels; Saskatchewan, 85, 856 barrels; 
Alberta. 183,640 barrels: total. 379,789 

In addition British Columbia in- 
creased her importations from 200,186 
to 893,460 barrela. In other provlncea 
there was little change. During Octo- 
ber British Columbia imported 100,400 

Headmaster of Bton Point* Out That 

Tal* Baa Been Cause of England's 


LONDON, Nov. 16.— Hon. Edward 
Lyttelton, headmaster of Eton, in open- 
ing a new college hall at norton, said 
people sometimes complained that vil- 
lage life wu dull. He only wished they 
bad a little more dullness of that Kind 
In England, because It was the village 
life that had made England urreat In 
the past. The men who bad comr'esed 
the army and navy in early times Were 
drawn from the villages, and Nelson 
himself declared that if his fcitwn had 
not been of such fine quality liu would 
never have won bo many victories. 

There was nothing that gave cause 
for greater alarm about England and 
her future than the fact that the young 
men were drifting out of the villages 
Into the towns. When a young fellow 
went to Lyndon and got married, in 
three generations his descendants had 
lost all the health and strength of the 
village life. This process had been go- 
ing on for some time, but he was In- 
clined to believe that it was stopping 

The building of the village hall In 
Horton would enliven the life of the 
place by bringing the young fellows 
! together, and would help to arrest the 
tendency of migrating to the towns. 
Cecil Rhodes, the great Imperialist and 
statesman, had once said that Eng- 
land's great colonizing power was due 
to the influence of the village church. 
He meant that there wai that In 
village life which brought people to- 
gether and taught them how to work 
with each other and to Hv* side by 
side In harmony. It was a grand 
thing to belong to a village which had 
such a history as Horton, rich aa It 
was in Its memories of Milton.

Striking Display in Melbourne 
Yesterday of the Results ot 
Universal Training in the 

SYDNEY, X.S.YV"., Nov. 16. — There was 
a great parade today of tl.c Melbourne 
cadets, when seventeen thousand par- 
ticipated. For three miles the route 
was lined with spectators five and six- 
rows deep, and the crowds were so en- 
thusiastic and determined on securing 
vantage points that special police were 
required to control the lines of march. 

TIip parade was of such length that 
seventy-five minutes was required for 
it to pass a. given point. The minister 
of defence characterised the march past 
as n. magnificent display of young man- 
hood, and a triumphant exhibition of 
the excellent results of universal train- 

LONDON. Nov. 16.— -The general ad- 
vance of the Bulgarian army on the 
Turkish lines at Tchatalja. the main 
obstacle between it and Constantinople 
has commenced, and, according to Sofia 
reports, already has met with some suc- 

The Bulgarians aim at attackiv-tr 
Simultaneously the forts of which the 
line is composed «nd with that object 
the army Is stretched across the penin- 
sula. With every available piece of or- 
tllllery that could be gathered together it 
is marching straight toward* the work.i. 
which, until the Turks suffered their 
series of awful defeats, were considered 
by military experts impregnable. 

The advance guard of this great 
army of invasion has already reached 
the village of Lazarukeui, near Lake 
Derkos. on the Turkish right: the town 
of Tchatalja, facing the centre of the 
Jine which takes its name from the town; 
and Arnautkeul, further to the south 
and near to the sea of Marmora. 
Bombarding the City 

All these places have been occupied, 
and from Arnautkeul the Bulgarian ar- 
tillery is shelling Byuk Chekmedje, 
where there are two Turkish forts, com- 
posing the extreme left of the Turkish 

At other points, too, the guns have be- 
gun to speak, andjrorn the M^aTound 
Constantinople fi^^^^^l^W^i. 
Some small recd'hJjfo'^er>hg' partfes have 
got around the flank of the. Turkish 
right, and are operating in the country 
between the Tchatalja lines and the 
capital. But the various divlelone have 
only just commenced the attempt to 
make a breach that will give them an 
opening toward the city of their desire. 

Turkish Strength 

Those who have visited the Turkish 
front differ considerably as to the 
ability of the defenders to hold the forts. 
Some declare that the Turks, strength- 
ened by reinforcements, with an abund- 
ance of ammunition and provisions, will 
make a good stand, while others be- 
lieve an army still containing remnants 
of forces so badly beaten in previous en- 
gagements cannot hold out 

Cholera has Invaded the camp to dis- 
hearten them, and again the Bulgarians 
will have the advantage of superior ar- 
tillery. However, unless the Turks 
give up without a fight, there will be a 
battle perhaps more sanguinary than any 
that has preceded It, before peacemakers 
succeed In their efforts to end the con- 

Although the cost in lives will be 
heavy, the Bulgarians would like to have 
the battle over before an armistice Is 
arranged, because with the Turks beaten 
in their last ditch it would be a long 
time before they could make further 
trouble for their neighbors. 

Porta Holding Oat 

Scutari. Adrlanople and Monastlr are 
still holding out against the allies, who 
keep up their bombardments. The 

Greeks are now heading toward Janlna,

confirmed report, have beaten the Serv- 
ians' in the race to Sam Giovanni di

.Now, what are the facta? Mr. Frank 
Cochrane introduced a bill "to encour- 
age and assist the Improvement of high- 
ways." On the motion for the second 
reading, Sir Wilfrid Laurler took excep- 
tion to the third, fourth and fifth 
clauses of the bill, protesting against 
the government asking parliament to 
vote moneys without a declaration aB 
to how tl.ey should be expended, and 
asserting that the. only proper prin- 
ciple was that the moneys should be 
paid to the various provinces by popu- 
lation, and he moved:

Canadian mortgage company upon 

whom tills demand Is made to Inquire 
under what act of parliament power 
has been conferred upon British rev- 
enue authorities to extort Income tax 
on payments made in Canada. The 
demand Is, In fait, n direct menace to 
Canada herself. The British govern- 
ment may theoretically possess a hazy 
and entirely Impracticable right t i 
Impose an Income tax upon Canadian 
Citizens. Thnt right It would hot dare 
to exercise, for the simple reason that 
the whole of the Dominion would In- 
stantly be up In arms against it. But 
the attempt to inquire Into the Iden- 
tity of persons to whom Canadian 
mortgage companies pay dividends in 

Canada Itself Is scarcely less Insidious 
and scarcely less insulting to the 
Canadian people. Canada requires 
every shilling of capital that she can 
obtain from British Investors. She 
has been muterlally assisted in secur- 
ing it by tho knowledge that money 
Invested within her borders was safe 
from the policy of everlasting filch 
and grab with which English revenue 
officialism generally, and tho name Of 
Mr. Lloyd George' fen particular. Is as- 
sociated. But the current of invest- 
ment may easily be turned la another 
direction If the Canadian government 
tolerates for an Instant the impertin- 
ence of English revenue officialism In 
prying Into lntereat and dividend pay- 
ments which take place within Cana- 
dian territory itself. 

The Financial News trusts that the 
Dominion Government will not only 
discourage, but prevent, the giving of 
any information with regard to the

grammar and more teaching of correct 
enunciation would be a good rule for the 
schools. ' 



The periodical discussion of the posl- 
tlon of the arms of the celebrated 
Statue, known as the Venus de Milo, 
has been renewed. Most p-eople know 
the statue, either from replicas or pic- 
tures. It is a figure with drapery 
around the lower part of the body and 
the logs; both arms are broken off at 
a short distance from the shoulder; 
M. Jean Alcard, a well known academJp* 
ian, who has many valuable manu- 
scripts in his possession, makes . the 
statement that the statue when found 
had both anna in place, and he says 
that one of them hangs downward, the 
hand grasping the drapery, and the 
other was raised aloft, holding an 
apple, and he claims that the proper 
name of the statue la Venus Vlctrlx, 
that la, Venue the Victor. The story Is 
that when the French sailors, who were 
suthorlaed by their government to buy

Land Registry 

sir -i notice in the Colonist of yes- 
terday, November 1C, a letter from Mr. 
Jackson stating the unsatisfactory con- 
dition of the registry office In British 
Columbia as regards the public regis- 
tering of their tltU's. 1 would like to 
corroborate Mr. Jackson's letter and 
give some of my experience in register- 
ing titles. For the last ten years 1 
have never been free of troubles in the 
registry office either in Vancouver, 
Victoria, Westminster or Knmloops. I 
would like to give one instance that Is 
at uresent going on with me. In June, 
19 if. I sold a fraction of land, about an 
aero and a half from a forty-acre farm 
down In Chllliwack, I have not yet re- 
ceived my certificate of title back, and 
on writing to the registry office after 
a year had elapsed, was told it would 
be Homo months yet before I could get 
(my title, owing to the old excuse, 
stress of work. 

.Surely, after paying heavy fees to 
get our land registered, the public are 
entitled to better accommodation than 
to have to wait sixteen months and, 
for all I know, it may he two yearn 
before a peraon can get Ma title back. 
No wonder titles are sometimes lost 
as I can answer for by experience, hav- 
ing already had one title lost that I 
had to get renewed. If the offices are 
overworked, why cannot the govern- 
ment get more clerks?

One of the most notable figurea In the 
political life of Ottawa has passed away 
by the death of Mr. Napoleon Audette. 
He waa not a member of parliament; he 
waa only a barber; hut he probably knew 
more about politics and politicians than 
the average member of either house of 
the Dominion parliament For years he 
was the barber of the house of com- 
mons; for years he was the man who 
dally shaved Sir John Macdonald. Be 
was the custodian of the barber's .shop 
In the house of commons from isf* l<> 
1896, and was a most lntt*u*j Conserva-

the policy of Sir John A- Macdonald ar d 
his successors. When the Liberals came 
into power In 1896, Napoleon was otto of 
the first victims of the gu'.I'otine. He 
was deprived of his barber's shop and of

political parties. We li.-'d it very diffi- 
cult to Imagine the existence of any 
party In the Dominion whose views will 
not "find expression by frankly putting 
Canada first." While, we do not claim 
for Conservatives any monopoly of the 
line of thought which our contemporary 
6?ras inclined to attribute to what will 
In the future correspond to the Conserv- 
ative party of today, we I sinnot overlook 
the fact that the "Canada First". Mca 
found expression In the National Policy, 
the very essence of which is that Canada 
must "frankly" be placed first. So. when 
Collier's suggests that a party, corre- 
sponding in a general way to the Con- 
servative party of today, will In the 
future place Canadian Interests in sub- 
ordination to imperial interests, wher- 
ever Judication it may have for to 
thinking. It certainly cannot discover It 
In the record of the Conservative party. 
The Duke of Argyll, then 'Marquis of 
Lome, looked upon the National Policy 
tariff as so distinctly anti-imperialistic 
— although we did not use Such term's in 
those days — that he asked the Colonial 
Office if he should assent to it. Writers 
on economic subjects In the first half of 
the last century were accustomed to 
take the view of the inter-imperial rela- 
tion which Collier's thinks a Canadian 
party will hold in the future. 

There Is a disposition among recent 
iv liters on subjects affecting the Brit- 
ish Empire to assume that the various 
questions that have to be consldcreo are 
as of yesterday, so to speak. In point 
of fact, they have long been discussed. 
There has been a steady evolution along 
these lines, and we do not anticipate 
that any Canadian party will suffer a 
relapse and attempt to set the Clock 
back a hundred years. We suggest, to 
our contemporary that in working out 
the unique problem involved in the pro- 
gress of the British Kmpire, one step at 
a time Is about all that any one is safe 
in talcing. 



Mr. feorien met this proposition with 

a direct refusal. He said: "We propose

of a schoolgirl, who

subject, the exact nature of 
which Is not material. He asked her 
how she Intended to use the knowledge 
that she' was acquiring. She replied 
that -'.she intended to be a teacher and 
would impart It to others. The uncle 
asked what the others would do. and she 
replied that they would teach it to 
others, who would teach It to others, 
and so ad infinitum. The uncle then 
asked if any person was ever likely to 
make use of the knowledge* in the prac- 
tical affairs of Uf e, and the girl admit-

doing so. This story was recalled by a 

A little knowledge "is sometimes a 
dangerous thing, but lack .of knOWled

made as the result of reading the report 
published In yesterday's Colonist of the 
intervl-w between the members of the 
Victoria Automobile Association and the 
Provincial Minister of Public Works in 
regard to good roads construction and 
co-operation between tho federul and 
provincial governments. 

That association presented a memo- 
randum in which it was stated:

and necessity of the Canadian federal 
government assisting financially the 
various provinces at once. In a substan-

tems such as the Canadian highway;

scription passed the House of Commons

ments being made on a population basis, 
it provoked strong hostility all through 
the West, so that friends and foes of 
the principle of federal aid joined to- 
gether and very properly killed the bill 
In the Senate? 

We enclose a cutting from today's 
Colonist In which an attempt la made 
to make political capital out of this 
matter. We think this subject should 
be kept wholly apart from party pi li- 
lies. However we know that you can- 
not help but agree with us when wo 
say that If apportionments arc made In 
the manner suggested by The Colonist, 
It will provoke strong hostility through-

worth while to repeat his protest, 
merely standing by his previous de- 
claration, and the house divided, with 
the result that 50 Liberals voted for 
the Laurler amendment, and ?8 Con- 
servatives voted against. 

Then the bill was read a third time, 
and sent to the senate. There the Lib- 
eral majority Inserted the amendment 
moved by Laurler In the commons, and 
which bad !>;en rejected by the gov- 
ernment. When the bill went back to 
the commons on March 28, 1912, the 
minister of railways moved that the 
senate amendments be not agreed to, 
and Mr. Borden added his dec! 
that the government would not

the two houses took place, but the 
senators stood by their amendment, de- 
clined to withdraw It, and the result ] 

is that the bill was killed for the j 
time bc'.ng. 

it was purely and simply the action 
of the Liberal party which, by insist- 
ing upon the principle of distribution 
by population, wrecked the bill. To

Mr. Lloyd George appears anxious 
to find out how much cnpltnl his 

methods of taxation has djrlyen out 

of the I'nlted Kingdom. We have be- 
fore us a clipping from The London 
Financial News, which contains a 
very bitter attack <>n what is de- 
scribed as "fin Insidious attempt to 
interfere In Dominion flnnnclal af- 
fairs." It says that it understands 
thnt the London offices of certain 
Canadian mortgage companies have 
recently received a request from the 

inland Revenue authorities to supply a 
11 -it of persons resident In the United 
Kingdom to whom such mortgage 
companies pay Interest or profits, and 
whether the payments are made In the 
I'nlted Kingdom or in Canada. After 
pointing out that the Inland Revenue 
authorities have, cd* course, power to 
obtain a list of persons who have In- 
vestments in the I'nlted Kingdom, 
the article goes on to say: 

The requirement of the names of 

persons to whom Interest Is paid In

Thoy contain things that would ;$pi£> 
made the great masters of English prose 
gape In astonishment. The average 
schoolboy, who has passed through 
what Is called grammar nowadays, could 
set a paper which Addison or Macaulay 
or Oliver Wendell Holmes could not an- 
swer, not to speak of such old-fashioned 
folk as Shakespeare and the translators 
of the Bible. 

Grammar can hardly be taught from 
books. It is best taught by example. It 
may be desirable to have pupils commit 
a few simple rules to memory, but when 
a boy is old enough to study grammar, 
he ought to know enough to speak gram- 
matically. A boy or girl who speaks 
and writes gramatlcally is simply wast- 
ing time studying grammar as it is 
taught today, and devoting to the ac- 
quisition of artificial rules mental ef- 
fort that might be better employed in 
other directions. It may be well, for 
example, for a boy to tell you what an 
adjunctive predicate is and differentiate 
between it and an extension of the pre- 
dicate — and we must confess that We 
do not know whether they are different 
or identical — but it is Infinitely more 
useful for him to read a sentence pro- 
perly. Most of what is taught today ns 
grammar is pointless and of no value. 
No living person pays the least attention 
to It either in speaking or writing. More- 
over, many of the definitions given in 
grammars, We might almost say all of 
them, are mere arbitrary Inventions of 
some one seeking to produce a book that 
some one else will think ought to be 
bought by parents for their children to

M. Alcard cites evidence In corrobora- 
tion of this story from persons who 
claim to have seen the statue before it 
wag broken. Of course the breaking 
took place some time ago. The statue, 
which. Is of Greek origin, and considered 
by some critics to be the greatest 
specimen of the sculptor's art, now ex- 
tant, was found in the island of Melos 
In 1820. Ever since it was brought to 
Paris and placed in the Louvre, there 
has been more or less discussion as to 
the position which the arms occupied, 
and this at times excited great inter- 
est. M. Alcard'a solution of the ques- 
tion seems to place ail doubts at reat, 
but it Is not universally accepted. 

White, green and red are the national 
colors of Bulgaria; but the flag has an 
Indented black border. 

, Answering a correspondent, we may 
say that we have not yet seen an of- 
ficial compilation of the popular vote at 
the last presidential election. 

It seems to be known for certain now 
that no redistribution bill will be intro- 
duced during the coming session of Par- 
liament. There was never any reason 
why it should be. The life of the pres- 
ent Parliament extends until 1916, and 
next year, or the year after, will be 
time enough for a redistribution bill.

One of the most Instructive features 
of the Balkan war Is its brevity. So 
much depends now upon the result of a 
single battle, that nations will be very 
slow to try conclusions at arms. The 
old days, when a series of campaigns 
was necessary to determine who should 
be victor, seem to have pnssed away. 
One great modern campaign would prob- 
ably exhaust the greatest world-power. 

In an editorial of yesterday dealing 
with the consolidation of the Empire, 
the types made us say that Lord Laus- 
downe suggested something in the na- 
ture of "ante-lmperlal trade preference." 
What was written was "inter-lmperlal." 
The context made the meaning clear, 
but, belnp mindful of the readiness With 
which statements of any kind are mis- 
construed, we make the correction. 

The regrettable occurrence of yes- 
terday morning, which resulted in the 
death of Jim Song and has brought 
sorrow Into several homes, conveys a 
lesson that we hope will not soon be 
forgotten. To comment upon It no.v 
would be out of place, as the case is 
before the court, but we may express 
Sympathy for the unfortunate victim 
nnd his friends. Perhaps some of us 
forget at times that our Chinese 
neighbors have their friendships and 
family ties as we have. They may 
not wear their hearts upon their 
sleeves, hut we must not forget that 
In some things the whole world Is 
kin. To all others to whom the un- 
happy event conies most closely home 
we tender an expression of very deep 
regret, In which We are sure the wh< le 
community will Join. 

In the death of Mrs. Charlie Ounlnn, 
the Songhees tribe of Indians has lost 
a warm and sincere friend. Her 
strong characteristics were much ad- 
mired. She Was a womnn who, 
through the force of her personality, 
held a considerable sway over the af- 
fection c/f the members of her tribe, 
nnd nmnng those of the citizens' gen- 
erally with whom she enme In contact 
she was highly esteemed. At the time 
of the negotiations between the pro- 
vincial government and the Songhees 
relative to the transfer of the reserve 
on the west sldo of the harbor, she 
fulfilled the part of Interpreter, and 
she did so With a full recognition of 
the importance of the office. Her un- 
timely end leaves a gap in the ranks 
of the tribe which It will be difficult 


Pronouncing Latin 

Sir,— In the editorial criticism in 
your issue - of - today on what is generr 
aily known as the "Oxford" pronun- 
ciation of Latin, the writer conveys 
the impression that this method, 
which he designates "Italian." is based 
on modern Italian pronunciation; this, 
of course, is quite erroneous. What- 
ever be the merits in orthodoxy of the 
Oxford method, it has very little in 
common with modern Italian, except 
the broad "a" (which Js also almost 
universal In cultured English) and 
the "oo" sound of "u." If Italian as 
spoken today is tho lineal descendant 
of Latin, it is one of the most strik- 
ing examples extant of the evolution 
of language, for it is one of the most 
(if not the most) euphonious and 
phonetic tongues known, whereas Ox- 
ford Latin is admittedly neither. 

The differences between the two 
are very great: "Qu" in Italian is not 
a "k" but "kw"; questo and quatro are 
pronounced "kwaisto" and "kwatro," 
the "k" sound being written "ch," as 
"chl," which is pronounced "kee." 
Again, "c" before "e" and "1" Is always 
soft, as It Is In English, but has the 
sound of "sh"; thus Cicero and Civitu 
Vecchla are pronounced "Shlshero" 
and "Shivita Vekkla," 

A good contrast of the three modern 
rival methods of Latin pronunciation 
Is obtained by their respective render- 
ings of Caesar's' laconic dispatch, 
"Venl, vidl, vici," which becomes, ac- 
cording to the school of reader (1) 
Wnynee, weedee, weekee; (2) Vaynee, 
veedee, vecshee; (3) Veenlgh, vldlgh, 
visigh. In most Kngllsh public 

schools tho last obtains, probably be- 
cause at its greater facility in mark- 
ing correct quantities In scansion, but 
It has this disadvantage that when a 
boy leaves school for the varsity he 
lias to change -to the Oxford method.

Christ Church Cathedral 

Sir, — Will you kindly permit us 
through the medium of you 4 widely- 
read paper to call Che attention of the 
parishioners of Christ church to a special 
vestry meeting that has been called 
by our dean for Wednesday evening 
next, November 20, at the cathedral 
school room, Quadra street, at 8 p.m., 
to thoroughly discuss and vote upon 
the following resolution recently passed 
by the church wardens and church com- 
mittee at a regular meeting, and to 
urge upon all parishioners the necessity 
of attending the vestry? 

"That, after very careful considera- 
tion, the church wardens have decided 
that the system of renting sittings in 
Christ church works a hardship and 
Injustice to n very large and over grow- 
ing majority of parishioners, nnd Is det- 
rimental to the best Interests of the 

"lie It therefore resolved: That, by 
and with the full consent of the rector 
of the parish, on and after the first 
flay of January, 1913, this system he 
abolished, and all seats In Christ church 
declared free and unappropriated." 

Our present position with regard to 
rented sittings, and our Increasing con- 
gregations, even after the erection of 
the Chapel of Ksise of St. Mary's at 
Oak Bay. Is well-night Intolerable; the 
resolution speaks for Itself, and in 
framed on the sound Christian rule, 
"God's House, fr*e to all alike, with 
special privileges to none." 

We, therefore, ask our people who 
sympathize with their wardens and 
officials in their attempt to administer 
the parish as the canon law lays down, 
in the interest of the parishioners as a 
whole, and of on one section, to ser- 
iously consider this matter In a Christ- 
Ian spirit, to obliterate self-intarests,

Napoleon was a great "character' !n the 
sense in which the phrase Ij use! \\\ 
Ireland. He had a wonderful fund of 
stories; he had the Instinct of seeing 
what was going to happen in politics, and 
he proved that characteristic, both io 
1896 and in 1911, by, weeks befors th - 
events, predicting the defeats of th? 
governments which came along In those 
years. One of his best s lories' had refer- 
ence to Sir John Macdonald on the morn- 
ing of September 18, 1878. That was the 
day after the great victory of the Na- 
tional Policy. Sir John had been pretty 
hard- up during his four years of oppo- 
sition, and he had accumulated a series 
of small, but none the less worrying, 
personal debts, among them a small 
amount due to Napoleon. Just as Na- 
poleon had the lather well applied to Sir 
John's face, the old man looked up, 
with a twinkle In his eye, and said: 
"Well, Nap, we did the trick well, didn't 
we? Tou needn't worry about those un- 
paid shaving tickets any more, need 
you?" To this Napoleon used to say 
that he replied: "I never, have- worried, 
sir. The distinction of shaving you has 
been my reward, and I want no pay for 
past services not yet compensated for. 
Those tickets shall be framed and kept 
in my shop as long as I live," and kept 
there they were, and are possibly there 
now. They were a few months ago. Au- 
dette also had the distinction of having 
been the hairdresser to every incumbent 
of the Governor-General's office from 
the Marquis of Lome on, and was es- 
pecially proud when he was asked to go 
down to Rldeau Hall last year, after the 
arrival of tho Duke of Connaught, and 
told that he was to be barber in ordin- 
ary to His Royal Highness.

A Momentous Decision 
-jfeplich fathers and husbands, 
bejra) :of the St. Andrew's Society of the 
District of Columbia, are practically 
in hiding as a result of their decision 
to abolish women from their official 
dinner because the latter' s presence 
would necessitate the absence of Scotch

The vote for whiskey as against women

"Wilson and Prosperity 
What kind of an architect will the 
new president prove himself to be? On 
his knowledge of men, his well as t in- 
accuracy of his Information as to sen- 
timent, conditions and the needs of the 
country, will depend his success In 
office. The country, thanks to the ad- 
herence of President Taft to the pro- 
tective policy, has Just launched on a 
splendid era of prosperity.. Whether 
this prosperity shall continue or wheth- 
er it shall be halted Is largely in the 
hands of the newly elected president 
Post, Independent. 

The question of naturalization in 
Canada, which has been referred to on 
several occasions In this column, has 
taken a new phase by the departure for 
the scene of war of hundreds of Greeks, 
Bulgarians, and other eastern Europeans 
who had become naturalized in Canada, 
but who could not resist the call of pa- 
triotism when their countries were in 
danger. They were British nubjects 
while in Canada. Are they British sub- 
jects now or are they Greeks, Bulgarians, 
Servians and Montenegrins again? What 
would happen to them if the British 
Empire were dragged Into the conflict 
and fortune compelled them to bear 
arms against the King of England? 
Would they be subject to trial for trea- 
son If they came back to Canada at tho 
close of hostilities? These are very nice 
questions for the lawyers to settle, but, 
on the face of It, the situation seems to 
be one which partakes of opera bouffc. 
These men have taken the oath of al- 
legiance to King George and are British 
subjects in Canada, but the moment they 
leave the shores of Canada they cease 
to be British subjects and revert to tlir-lr 
old allegiance. Could anything better 
Illustrate the absurdity of our present 
naturalization laws or bo more calculat- 
ed to Impress the need of a change? 


Mr, P. P. Simpson, Just Returned to 

Town Prom Extended Trip, Reports 

Splendid Condition of Things 

Baaing Into Spaoe. 

With his 40-foot reflector S'.r Wil- 
liam Herschel perceived stars whose 
light, he concluded, had occupied 2,000,- 
000 years to reaching the earth. 

His belief that he had seen further 
Into space than any other human being 
before him Is now pronounced a Just 
one by that noted astronomer, Dr .T. J. 
See. The visual power of Hcrschel's 
telescope is somewhat surpassed by 
modern instruments, and much addi- 
tional power Is given to the modern in- 
strument by the use of photography. 
But, on the other hand, we now have 
to take account of the extinction of 
light by cosmlcal dust In space. 

Neglecting this, Herschel slightly 
cverestlmated the distance to which Ills 
tplescopo could penetrate. With our 
greatest modern instruments and the 
use of photography, It Is certain. Dr. 
See tells us, that we "can penetrate to 
a depth of about 2,000,000 light years 
It It* very probable that we can pene- 
trate to a depth of about 5,000,000 
light j'ears. A modern sllver-on-glass 
reflector of 12 feet aperture would give 
about six times as much light as the 
CO-lnch reflector at Pasadena gives. 

With this gain of two magnitudes in 
light power It might be possible to 
penetrate Into apace at least twiCa the 
present distance, or of a depth from 
which the light takes 10,000.000 years 
to reach the earth. The depth to 
which we can penetrate is simply a 
question of telescopic power, which 
can be vastly but not indefinitely in- 
creased. At the present time a 13- 
reflaotor la possible. — Chicago 

Mr. P. E. Simpson returned last 
evening from a business trip to Kam- 
loops, Revelstoke, Nelson and Cran- 

Speaking of the conditions in the 
upper country, Mr. Simpson said that 
in his opinion times had never been 
better. There was no boom, but, from 
a substantial business standpoint, the 
country had never been more prosper- 

At Kamloops tenders were being 
received for the new hydro-electric 
power plant, the net cost of which is 
estimated at from 1300,000 to $350,000; 
and also for the extension of the 
water works system. 

Several large business blocks have 
been erected, and cluster lights placed 
on the streets. 

Revelstoke is enjoying Its first large 
measure of prosperity. Property Is 
moving in a manner that Is a flatter- 
ing Indication of the faith of the peo- 
ple In the future of the city. The re- 
newal of mining in West Kootenay 
and the prosperous condition of the 
fruit industry has given an Impetus 
to building and general business in 

Cranbrook, always a prosperous 
town, has at last convinced outsiders 
that the territory tributary to that 
town has great agricultural possibili- 
ties, and as a result there have been 
many purchasers in the past summer 
of five-acre tracts. 

The people generally speak very 
highly of the extended improvements 
to the roads and bridges In the Inter- 
ior, which have proved of such mater- 
ial benefit to the ranchers and others. 
There Is an optimistic feeling pre- 
vailing throughout the southern por- 
tion of tho province, and the people 
nro confident of much greater develop- 
ment next year. 

Purs and Cruelty 

We are reminded once more of the 
barbarity of the fur trade by a photo- 
graph of a little mink caught in a 
tooth trap out In the snow, sent by 
the Rev. S. MP. Stewart, of Ungava, 
who greatly deplores the cruelty in- 
volved In this trade. Ungava Is a lit- 
tle known region lying between Hud- 
son Bay and the Atlantic, so remote 
that letters and supplies are taken 
there once, or at most twloe, only in 
tho year. That the harmless littlo 
cmiit ures In this uncared for district 
have to suffer for the fancies of our 
Bo-called civilized countries shows 
how all life Is linked and kin, and 
how we can never tell what far-reach- 
ing results may follow any of our 
net Ions. We thank this missionary'' 
friend for his sympathy with the sub- 
human as well as the human suffer- 
ers, and would that we knew how to 
help them better. We can only beg 
our renders to accept this first-hand 
evidence of the reality of the cruelty, 
and do all they can to discounten- 
ance the barbarous fashion of fur 
wearing, for which, lr< our climate, 
tfc/crre Is absolutely ho excusa— Ani- 
mals' Friend.

At another English church, that of 
Acton, in Cheshire, it w;<s the practice 
during the middle <>f the laii century 
for one of the church wardens to pro- 
ceed through the church during ser- 
vice with a huge wand in his hand, 
wherewith, if any one of the congre- 
gation was observed to be asleep he 
instantly awakened bs a tap on 
the le.'i'i. 

In Warwickshire a similar custom 
prevnileii. a warden '■•■ irlng a stout 
wand shaped like a hay fork at the 
end stepped stealthily up and down 
the nave and aisles, and whenever lie 
saw an individual asleep be touched 
him so effectively that the nap wag 
broken, this being sometimes accom- 
plished by the application of 'he fork 

to the nape of the in ck.

seems that in Switzerland even women 
are forbidden to tamper with official

Sailors' Queer Cnitome 
The sailors' broad collars were de- 
vised so that the powder or tar on the 
wearers' queues should not come off on 
the blouses. In those days every sailor 
wore his hair in a queue, and either had 
the queue powdered or held together by 
tar. This was not good for the blouse 
or jacket underneath. So detachable 
broad collars were added. Sailors slop- 
ped wearing queues a century ago. But 
they still wear the wide collar. When 
Lord Nelson d1"d the British navy went 
into mourning for him. Sailors put 
broad, black ribbons on their caps 
and black ribbons in their blouses. And 
the ribbons remain to this day. not only 
on the uniforms of P.iltish sailors, but 
on thosn of other navies as woll. Tho 
broad "bell-shaped" ends of sailors" 
trousers legs wore thus shaped so that 
the wearer might more easily turn his 
trousers up above his knees when he 
had to swab the decks. Deck swabbing 
win a hateful and supposedly d^icradlng 
tank. Hence the sailors called their 
enemies "swabs" as a term of contempt.

Kurslng Corps 
Among nurses who volunteered for 
service in the Balkans was a detach- 
ment from the Women's Sick and 
Wounded Corps of London. This Is a 
body of women, many of whom occupy 
liijrli social positions, who have been 
drilling for three, years In order to 
prepare themselves for duty In time 
of «.ir.' Their leader Is Mrs. St. Clair 
Stobart. They have their own doctors 
and nurses and can Undertake all the 
work that requires to be done on the 
battlefield.' The womi'n have been 
trained In housewifery ana field work, 
in first aid and home and neld nursing, 
in physiology and anutomy, In practical 
hospital house work and in the man- 
agement" of horses, tn short, these 
women have prepared tlwmselyea to be 
as perfect and as Independent In tile 
sphere of nursing as an army corjia 
is In the domain of attnek and defense 
It Is a strange conception when one 
comes to think of it. The men of a 
country going out to alay aftd Be slain. 
the women, their sisters and ,- 
hearts, preparing to save life and. alle- 
viate suffering. And yet. woman's 
strength, fortitude, resourcefulness 
and pity could not be . used to better 
purpose. Mrs. Stobart was certain that 
her nurses could do jrood service in 
the war that It Is now hoped may be 
over, nor had She the least fear that 
they would suffer among those they 
volunteered to aid. 

Japanese advices state that the 
Franco-Japanese Bank, with which so 
many important international financial 
interests are associated, has commenced 
business. The Industrial Bank of Ja- 
pan, the Yokohama Specie Bank, the 
Hypotechec Bank, the Mitsui Kinko, 
the Mitsu-BIshl-Kinko, and the First 
Bank among Japanese institutions are 
connected 'with the new bank, and the 
French banks interested are ' the So- 
clete Generate 'and .the Banciue de Paris 
et des Pays Bas. The capital will be 
ten million yen. or slightly more than 
a million sterling, and three-fifths of 
this will be taken by the two French, 
and the balance by the several Japanese 
banks. It Is said that one of the first 
operations of the bank will be the 
emission in France of a loan for the 
Korean government for 12 1-2 million 
yen. or about a million and a quarter 
sterling. . , » '

have read carefully the report of the 
meeting of the Children's Aid society 
which appeared In Thursday's paper. 
The report shows a state Of things thnt 
should not be allowed to continue a 
month longer. The home for delin- 
quent or dependent children should 
have plenty of room. Such hoys and 
Kills need careful oversight and con- 
stant Instruction and IralnliiR-. Neither 
is possible, especially during the vln- 
tet Season, unless there l<i nmple room 
for work ;iml piny. It Is to be remetn- 
bered that If the home is full now, It Is 
not l!L.-lv th:il there will M f^wer 
Inmates In the dnrk weeks that are 
comliik'. Even if some of the hoys are 
prepared to ko to the country, this Is 
not the season of the year when their 
services are needed. It Is to he re- 
gretted that more Renernl Interest is 
not taken In this work among the clill- 
ilreu. Tlie active members of the so- 
ciety display great and no little 
self-denial. Their work Is one of 
prevention and of cure. It should he 

supported by parents everywhere. 

There Is no contagion worsr ihnn that 
of the avtla thai arise from tlie neglect 
oT children by their I'lircnls. It Is idle 
to think tli/it such contagion will not 
spread unless vigorous measures are 
takttl tb confine and destroy It. This 
oannol be done by shutting op offend- 
ers in a crowded home, still less hy 
allowing them to continue their wrong 
courses unchecked. Victoria cannot 
afford to neglect Its dMlno,uent Or 
dependent children and It should not 
nnl> place them in a hom> Sufficiently 
large but should equip It In a way to 
provide useful employment as well fts 
healthful recreation for every Inmate. 
This Is a very rich community and no 
necessary institution Should be allowed 
to suffer for want of funds. 




At Mrs. Blank's reception 1 met a 
gentleman who fulfilled my ideal of a 
man In all but one particular. He had 
a good head, fine physique, perfect 
manners, was a most interesting per- 
sonality, and bore himself with tlie dis- 
tinguished air of a gentleman. His lin- 
en was immaculate and. his clothes 
faultless as to cut and material. But 
all the pleasant first impression was 
ruined when I discovered the collar and 
shoulders of his dresscoat cavered with 
loose hair att<l flakea of dandruff. 

To me this was nn Indication of per- 
sonal carelessness, not to say uncleanll- 
ness. I wanted to tell him to get a 
bottle of Newbro's Herplcide. This re- 
markable remedy would, in a short 
time, remove every trace of dandruff 
from his bead, stop his hair from fail- 
ing and prevent him from becoming 
bald. I don't like baldheaded men; they 
look old whether tiny are or not. 

DandrUR Is caused by a germ and 
Xewbro's Herpicide kills that germ. 
The Itching, which is so frightful with 
dandruff. Stops almost instantly. 

Iferpicide Is the Original Remedy 
that destroys dandruff. There Is noth- 
ing in the world just like it, nothing 
that is ".lust as good." 

Newbro's KsVpiitde in 50c and $1.00 
sl/.cs Is sold hy all dealers who guar- 
antee It to do all that is claimed. If 
you are not satisfied your money will 
be refunded.

competition has taken on a renewed in- 
terest as the result of yesterday's game. 
Bays Deserved Win 

|fllMMpre d to win. The Oak Bays paid 

M attention to three-quarter play, 
but they had some fast men and their 
passing — whut there was of It — was 
good. It was by dribbling rushes, 
though, that they made their gains. 
Who* with their weight and determined 
• aggressiveness there was hardl,y~^"any 
stopping them once- they got the ball 
at their feet. And their fierce tackling 
and the fearless way in which they 
dropped in front of the ball stopped 
many a dangerous chaj-ge by their op- 
ponents. They were much faster than 
the Wanderers in following up. 

The losers had plenty of weight and 
g-ot the ball from the scrum more often 
than did the Oak Bays, but their scrum 
half did not show up well, being slow 
in getting the ball out to the rear di- 
vision. The combination of the three- 
quarters was weak and their runs sel- 
dom ..gained them, more than a few feet. 

This unexpected feebleness on the 
part of the Wanderers' back field was 
in a certain measure due to the careful 
way the Oak Bays watched the Grants. 
Captain Heinekey played an extra three- 
quarter, taking a man off the forward 
.line* whose chief part was to stick like 
glue to these powerful backs. Also 
backing up of the man with the 

il was feeble and often a pass fell 

' short. Daniels, who is a fullback, was 

im, the three-quarter line and showed 

plainly that he was not accustomed to 

the place. 

The Pirst Try 

After pressing hard all through the 
latter part of the first half the Oak 
Bays got their first try shortly before 
the whistle blew. D. M. Grant got the 
ball from a melee almost at midfield 
and through some mishap passed into 
i hands of an Oak Bay man, Yates, 
The ball went from Yates to Sedger to 
"Boss" Johnson, who Jogged through 
the goal posts and touched down. Coop- 
er converted. 

For a while in the second period it 
looked as if the Wanderers might over- 
Come their lead. They drove the Bays 
-.vithfn their twenty-five lino and held 
l Inrn there for almost ten minutes, but 
misplays lost them any chance to get 
over. About half way through the ses- 
sion, the Bays got a lucky score, which 
gave them the game beyond any doubt. 
From a line-out at centre, the throw-in 
being Oak Bays', the Wanderers were 
caught napping, Blaney Scott taking 
in: ball and running it behind the posts 
■without a semblance of opposition. 
Many of the Wanderers were of the im- 
pression that the throw-In was onooked 
and made no effort to stop the runner. 
Cooper again converted. 

Wanderers Come Up 

The losers played a strong game for 
the remainder of the tlrm> and generally 
nad the play in Oak B<iy's territory. 
Their only try was scored by Askland, 
who bowled McDonald over as that 
player was in the act of kicking away 
from his goal line and carried the ball 
over' in the! extreme left corner. The 
angle was very difficult and the kick 
to convert failed. 

in fairness to the Wanderers it must 
be conceded that they were not in as 
good shape as tin ( >ak Bays and did 
hot field as strong a team as when they 
beat the Welshmen, while the Bays 
vifvc .strengthened by the addition of 
Lee Sweeney, an old Victoria represen- 
tative veteran, and Cyril Sedger, a 
heavy useful forward. Without sitghting 
the fine work of Heinekey, Houston, 
Cars lairs, the Grants, Mr-Innes or any 
Other man on the field it can be said 
that Blaney BoOtt was the best man on 
the field. He was at the head of every 
rush by Oak Bay and his great height 
mado htm a tower of strength in the

Champion Arrives in San Fran- 
cisco Bubbling Over With 
Confidence, Wise Ones De- 
clare Odds Will be 3 to 1, 

SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., Nov. 16.— 
Bubbling over with confidence that he 
will have no trouble beating Willie 
Ritchie on Thanskglvlng Day, Ad Wol- 
gast, the lightweight champion, arrived 
in town today. . ■ 

The town is full of Rltehie-Wolgast 
talk. It was the main pipe line of dis- 
cussion In all sorts of circles yesterday 
and last night, showing that ; the fight- 
ing game In San Francisco is Just as 
live as it ever was, and that the patrons 
are Just as willing as ever to go to 
the bat for a real championship card 
when it Is duly prepared for them. 

Already they are beginning to talk 
about the probable odds, and the wise 
followers of the game — the men who 
are In the habit of making the price — 
declare that the champion will rule a 
I to 1 choice over the challenger. The 
very fact that Ritchie shaded Wol 
in that four-round mlxup last May does 
not seem to figure as an argument 
at all. The masses like the title 

holder, they are coin?,- to make him a 
favorite an.] that settles it. !. . 

As usual, the champion will do hie 
work out at tlm s< .1 Rock house. He 
has trained there for every fight he has 
fotrgfei in this elty. His first start 
here was (gainst Lew Powell Just three 
years ago this month. He hammered 
Powell all over the rln;; for 2'> 
and all i>;it broke the local $poi I 
had made LrfVl a topheavy 2 to 1 choice. 

"Just tell everybody In Sail Fran- 
elaco that I am tickled in death with 
the match," rhirped th<; champion. "I 
want t" f!£ht In S»n Francisco more 
than In any Other city In the world — 
Just to Show them that I am still there. 
1 was n't right When I mixed up wiih 

Ritchie in that four-round •". but it 
will he different this time, ah i want 

is a chance to start again. If I do 
make good, then I'll take the blame." 
RitQhie laughs at those who do not 
believe that he can make 1 3 f! pounds 
ringside and be nt his best. He Weighed 
under this mark when be CaCSd the 
champion in that metftorabni four-round 
mlxup, nnil n<- certainly made a great 
Showing. In fact, It was that battle 
that brought him into the limelight and 
paved the way for the match which 
has Just been made.

A meeting of the Y.M.C.A. Hockey

In Most Brilliant Game of Foot- 
ball Seen in California the 
Australians Beat All-Stars, 
Erb's Grand Work, 

BERKELEY. Cal., Nov. 16.— The all- 
star Waratas Rugby team, of Australia, 
defeated the All-California fifteen on 
the California university field today 
12 to 8, In the most thrilling game of 
football seen in the west since the Eng- 
lish sportj was adopted. 

The visitors won on team, work, com- 
iiTg gamely from behind with a deter- 
mination that would not be denied after 
the Californlans had scored twice, once 
on a. try which Erb converted for five 
points, and again by the aid of Erb's 
boot when he .kicked a perfect goal from 
the forty-five yard line on a penalty. 

The Australians scored all their 
points in the second half. A sudden 
brace In their playing carried tho ball 
from their own goal line tho length 
of the field. Again they demonstrate! 
their superior skill at playing the ball 
with their feet, and dribbled across the 
line for the first try. Within five 
minutes they repeated their work, Wind- 
ing up with a passing rush, which 
scored the second try, and ten minutes 
later a thl I ti ristered, making 

the score to 8. The last score was 
a goal 'from e penalty. Poor kicking 
lost the six points on unconverted tryB. 
nlana opened with a rush. 
Halt way through the first half, they 
drove the visitors back, and a dashing 
passing rally followed, Morris to Allen 
to Noble to Allen, who scored. Erb's 
kick wis perfect 

Erb's penalty goal came In the sec- 
ond half on an offside by the Aus- 
tralians. During that portion of the 
game, the Californlans had things much 
their own way up to the time the Aus- 
tralians took a brave brace, and showed 
what they could do.

F. The. Navy -Esquimau and Wests sjjfef 
gaged in a ragged contest, from which 
the former emerged victorious by the 
scoro of 2 to 1. Touson scored for tho 
Wests in the first half, and Reid and 
Grant, in the second half, brought in the 
goals for the Navy. J. B. A. A. defeated 
the Coronas, scoring 3 and blanking

Esquimalt-Navy are also even, with 8 
points each. 

Wests vs. J. B. A. A. 

In a somewhat one-sided match at Oak 
Bay, yesterday afternoon, the Wests 
senior soccer eleven shut out J. B. A. A. 
from their last chance for the city 
championship by the score of 3 to 1. The 
contest was not altogether devoid of in- 
terest, especially In tho opening stages. 

Almost at the outset, McDonald, the 
Bays' centre forward, put in a shot that 
beat Robertson, custodian for the Wests, 
and for a while at this period It looked 
as if the Wests were up against a hard- 
er proposition than they had expected. 
But the energy of the Bays seemed to be 
exhausted by these early attacks, while 
that of the Wests increased as the game 
advanced. During most of the match, 
play was confined to the territory of the 
Bays and they were hardly ever danger- 
ous. .At half time the score stood one 
each, the Wests' goal coming from a 
scrimmage in which It was hard to dis- 
tinguish the players. 

In the second half, Finlay. inside right 
for tho Wests, and Youson, who played 
at inside left, each put in a goal from 

Sam Lorlmer, as on many former oc- 
casions, was the mainstay of the Bays. 
Dave Dougan made an Impartial referee. 

The teams follow: 

Wests — Goal, Robertson; backs, 
Whyte and Prevost; halves, Cowper, 
retticrew and Donald; forwards, 

Sherratt Finlay, Baker, Youson and 

J. B. A. A. — Goal, Lefevre; backs, 
l.miinnr and Lawsnn; halves, Proctor, 
Morris and Matthews; forwards, 
Breadner, Stokes, McDonald, Pilklngton 
and Attweii. 

8. O. r. vs. Thistles 

Playing with an easy asf-urance that 
bespoke a consciousness of superiority, 
and preserving a unity of action that Jio 
effcrts of their adversaries could shake, 
the Sons of England defeated the 
Thistles by the decisive score or 3 to 
in an interofUinjr soccer match at the 
Royal Athletic Park yesterday after- 

In no case was there a hint of a fluke 
In the goals scored; each one was as 
Pretty and neat a shot an could be de- 
sired, and each had a particular Individu- 
ality characteritie of the style of the 
player who secured It. 

Fred. Kerley. the active outside right 
for the Rons, brought in the first tally, 
taking a short pass from S. Groenbalgh, 
and driving the ball into the net without 
any preliminary steadying or pause for 
balance or aim. For a time subsequent 
to this goal the Sons put up a brilliant 
exhibition of football, resulting in an- 
other tally, for which Sam Greenhalgh 
was responsible. P'ollowln^ this, ths 
Thistles brightened up, and took the ag- 
gressive. But the defence of the Sons 
was too much for them, and very soon 
the Sons resumed their former aggres- 
siveness. Herb. Greenhalgh netting the 
ball for the final score of the game 
about fifteen minutes before the inter- 

About ten minutes after the kick-off 
for the second period Sam Greenhalgh 
received a nasty blow, whloh necessitat- 
ed his removal from the field for the 
rest of the game. Thle loss, although in 
the general appearance of the play It 
made no appreciable difference, was ap- 
parent when, on several occasion*, there 
Was a good pass to centre, but no one 
fn a position to convert It to a tally. 
Store than once, however, the Sons 
threatened to add another goal In this 
half, keeping their own position as se- 
cure as before. The Thistles made a 
Uvely rally shortly before full time, but

Other Day, Reeve Mars Said: 

••Yesterday, Mr. F. W. Peters, General Superintendent BritlBh Columbia 
division of the Canadian Pacific Railway; Division Engineer Rlndall. and Sup- 
erintendent G. E. Graham, of the Cascade subdivision, were in Coquitlam look- 
ing oyer the terminals, and the site for the station. In conference with Mr. 
Peters, he authorized me to state that the new Coquitlam ntatVon of the Can- 
adian Pacific Railway will be located on Block 16, D.«. 4$3> 

Continuing, the Reeve at some length made the station situation so plain 
that there can no longer be any doubt. 

Mr. Peters' announce-nent disposes, once and for all, of the oft- 
repeated assertion that the Coquitlam station would not be located 
n the townsite. It IS located in the tov/nsite. 

Moreover, the Coquitlam Council after the Reeve had made his statement, 
decided to ask the Canadian Pnclflc Railway to call the new station "Port 
Coquitlam," in order to distinguish It from the Westminster Junction station, 
and to distinguish the now city of Port Coquitlam — when is about to be incor- 
porated — from the old. large, rural Municipality of Coquitlam. 

This is another contribution to the rapidly increasing volume of 
evidence which is proving to the investing public thai ibc Coquit- 
lam Terminal and Townsite Companies knew what they were talk- 
ing about when, over a year ago, they began to give the public 
some idea of the impending developments at Coquitlam. 

It is really remarkable how Coquitlam has remained solid and 
steadfast through a torrent of abuse and scurrilous misrepresenta- 
tion, and now emerges today from the fog of defamation as the 
ONE new town which is unquestionably fulfilling promises and 

Think it over and ask yourself: Where is there any other new 
town that is making good as Coquitlam is?

Miss Clara Gunlon. a daughter of the 
couple, was attending to the store, and 
about C o'clock heard her father and 
mother quarrelling In their room at the 
:jre«r. She went back and urged her 
father to cease his verbal attack upon 
her mother. She then returned to the 
store. Later, when she went back again 
her mother was in the slttlnsr room and 
apparently ill. !>r, McMlcking was sum- 
moned and attended. Mrs. Gunion re- 
ferred to her sudden illness, but what 
her statement was Dr. McMlcklag re- 
fuses to divulge until the inquest, which 
will bo held tomorrow afternoon at 4 
, Death Results 

Mrs. Gunion did not at that time ap- 
pear to be so ill that there was any 
likelihood of serious results. She re- 
mained in the sitting room reclining on 
a couch for the balance of the evening:, 
but about midnight or shortly after- 
wards became seriously ill. Dr. George 
Hall, who is the family's regular med- 
ical attendant, but for whom Dr. Mc- 
Micking relieved on the first summons, 
was called, but it was some time before 
he could respond, and he did not get to 
the Gunion residence until after 4' 
o'clock yesterday morning. When he ar- 
rived Mrs. Gunion was dead, 

From the previous circumstances dur- 
ing the preceding afternoon and even- 
ing Dr. Hall deemed it wise to notify the 
police, the patrol wagon going put to 
the reserve. After a brief investigation 
file police brought Gunion to the city 
lockup, and early yesterday morning the 
provincial police were notified and com- 
menced a fuller investigation of the 
case. No definite charge has been laid 
against Gunion, the result of the post- 
mortem which will be held this morning 
being awaited. 

Sought Xeturn of Money 
The trouble between Gunion and 
his wife '.arose • over' a sum of money 
which the man gave her shortly after he 
received the payment made by the pro- 
vincial government at the time the 
transfer of the Indians from the old to 
the new reserve was negotiated. Gunion 
attempted to get her to return the 
money, but. fearing he would waste it, 
she refused to do so. Their quarrels 
had been frequent, he always being the 
aggressor, it is said. A few days ago ho 
was fined in the provincial court for in- 
toxication and on Friday morning was 
convicted In the city police court also. 

He had, on returning home on Friday, 
taken a quantity of liquor with him and 
was In a decidedly quarrelsome mood 
during the afternoon. Just what trans- 
plred bstWSan himself and his wife 
when their daughter Clara heard them 
quarrelling II H«t known to the police, 
or, if Known. Is being withheld The 
police state that there were no eye-wlt- 
es to any actual physical attack, if 
nny such attack occurred. In fact, Super- 
Intendent Campbell yesterday asserted 
that J o far as the police Investigation 
disclosed the cause of death Is a mys- 
tery to him. 

Both Gunion and Mrs. Ounlon tire 
|,i ■uiiltient members of the BpngheeS In- 
dian tribe. Mrs. Ounlon being highly 
thought Of and a general favorite not 
only with the Indians but with many 
Whites Of Mil* elty. (lunion, too, is ah 

amiable man when sober, but very quar- 
relsome when In his cups. 

their selection was made contrary to Mr. 
F. W. Dyke's batter financial judgment. 
The selection was made simply with a 
view to doing th* most good in an educa- 
tional sense and to keep the student In 
touch with the highest Intellectual cen- 
tres throughout the world. Many of 
those who were present last night ex- 
pressed the wish that the lecturer might 
speedily return to the city, so that they 
might once more have the pleasure of 
learning from his wonderful lore.

Wire to Patrick States That 
Doctor's Examination Shows 
Dubbie to be Able to Play 
Hockey This Winter,

BHfc, " 

Hockey fans will be gjsd to learn 
that Albert (Dubbie) Kerr, the sensa- 
tional Ottawa wing last winter, will 
play in the coast league this season 
after all. Lester Patrick got a wire 
from Kerr yesterday, informing him 
that Kerr would leave for the coast, 
.November 19. 

Kerr was -one of the players signed 
by Lester Patrick a month or so ago, 
while Lester was on hrs scouting trip 
in the east. Kerr is acknowledged to 
be one of tho best hockey players in 
the world, and, therefore, his coming 
was heralded with loud acclaim. "What 
a blow, then, when « was reported 
that t*s reason of *U <f*la sttn»ion of 
delight Was strfefcan with a,', savers at- 
tack of pneumonia in "Winnipeg, and 
would not b« abla to #sy hoeKey at 
all this Winter. 

Now, however, all la perfectly lovely 
again. Kerr waa discharged from the 
, tnra weeVi »»n. and an rTam-

would be able to play this winter, and 
wnttld hc-aa-goo d a a e v er h ff 'w ka 

Donald Smith yesterday wired the 
coast promoters asking 1 for hie release, 
as he is desirous of signing with the 
Montreal Wanderers. The reply of the 
B.C.H.A., magnates was sharp and to 
the <point informing Smith that under 
no circumstances would they release 
him, and that they would regard him 
as a contract breaker if he did not fulfil 
his agreement to come to the coast 
this winter. Hugh Lehman has also 
wired that he has been tendered a more 
tempting contract than that which he 
signed to play with New Westminster 
for. It is expected, however, that he 
Will again guard the nets of the Royal 
City team. 

Occrgo Kennedy has written Frank 
Patrick, asking that he trade Newey 
Lalonde for Didie* Pltre. This the 
coast magnate has.:. consented to do, 
and Pitrie will figure on the defence of 
the New Westminster team this eyar, 
replacing Ernie Johnson. Mr. Patrick 
further states that he is absolutely 
through with Johnson and Hyland, as 
well as other contract breakers. 

C. A. Welsh, a member of the New 
Westminster Arena Co., states that 
everything will .be ready for the open- 
ing of the Royal City rink on December 
20, the ice plant having arrived, while 
work is proceeding satisfactorily upon 
the transformation of the horse show 
into an ice skating palace. 

OTTAWA, Nov. 16.— An important 
conference was held today, at which 
arrangements were finally made for 
extending the close of navigation till 
at least December 20. Full' considera- 
tion was given to every detail of the 
question, and all plans were perfected 
for the placing of Ice-breakers at dif- 
ferent points where they may be re- 
quired, in addition to Port Arthur and 
Fort William, such as the, BOOi Port 
Me.Vicol, Midland and oilier plftOOA 

The department of finals l.s under- 
taking to see that the canal at the 
Boo i.s kept clear, and the arrange- 
ments completed have been such thai 
the lake carriers have been informed 
they need have no cause for alarm In 
so far as the ice is concerned.

A Bullied Civilization 

The country, of which. Kashgar is the 
capital, constitutes the basin of the 
Tarim, on which the chief city is lo- 
cated, almost to the deserts of the Lob 
Nor. The population is mostly Tartar, 
although there is a mixture of Turkish, 
Arabs, Persians, Thibetans, Chinese 
and Mongols and researches made by 
various scientists during: the last few 
years, notably by Drs. Sven Hedin and 
Stein have discovered traces of ruined 
cities" and an ancient civilization ex- 
tending back to the 4th or 3d century, 
B. C, on the southern edge of the 
Ta&la-meka n deserts. 

Mr. Macartney's brother, who looks 
after the British interests at this im-

as the discoverer of various manu- 
scripts referring to the origin of the 
people and their civilization. ^ he*

Kashgar Is on the head streams of the

Four Divers Had to Swim Out 
Through Hatchway to Save 
Themselves When Bulwarks 

The steamer Salvor, of the British 
Columbia Salvage Company, was to 
leave Balboa yesterday to convey the 
raised Pacific MaU liner Newport, 
successfully floated some c'.ays ago by 
the local salvuge craft to San Fran- 
cisco.'. Great praise Is being given to 
the salvors from Victoria by the ship- 
ping men of the Pacific coast. It was 
Stated In previous reports that the 
prospects were discouraging— as w*» 
shown, by v ||e advance of the reinsur- 
ance to 50 per cent— and the floating 
of the steamer was the culmination of 
as splendid a piece of salvage work as 
has been done on the North Pacific 

Further advices received here from 
the Panama port state that the salvors 
encountered unusual handicaps, and 
they are considered to be entitled to 
all the more credit for their persever- 
ance and final success. 

Diver's Close Call 

A letter from Captain W. H. Logan, 
representative of the London Salvage 


The fishery protection steamer Rest- 
less, Capt. Moore, reached Esquimau 
yesterday to undergo an annual over- 
hauling at the naval yard and repair 
damage done by -a fire which broke out 
in the forecastle while the veswjul was 
laboring in a heavy gale in northern 
..waters. The Restless left New West- 
minster, where . the vessel makes its 
headquarters, on Oetober 29, 1912, for 
the Queen Charlotte Islands on an in- 
spection tour and patrol trip and when 
returning ran into a strong gale. About 
5 o'clock on the evening of November 
7, the little boat was making her way 
with difficulty against a head wind 
with the waves continually lashing 
themselves over the upper deck. AH 
the hatchways were battened down and 
everything on .board -was prepared for 
a dirty night. 

One of the firemen, who chanced to 
make his way forward, noticed smoke 
wlsping.from the forward deck and at 
once gave the alarm. Captain Moore 
vra* at the wheel at the time and had 
all his work cut out to keep the boat's 
head against the storm. Mr. Adlaw, 
the first Officer, and the engineer. 
James Greer, took it upon themselves 
to fight the fire which was seen to be 
Steadily gaining headway. Opening 
the batch, the flames burst out and 
commenced licking up everything In 
sight. The hose and pumps on board 
were brought into play and after a hard 
battle the flames were eventually sub- 

Later, investigation showed that a 
lantern had been left in the 'forward 
quarters where the crew sleep, and the 
rolling of the boat made It slip from 
the hanging, whence It smashed to 
pieces on the floor, the flames starting 
the woodwork burning. 

Captain Moore said he could not 
speak too highly of the work of his of- 
ficers and crew. With no railings 
around the lower deck the men had to 
crawl along from the galley inch by 
inch, being in continual danger of being 
washed overboard. The damage was 
not great owing to the conflagration 
being- discovered in time.

the loss of a" month's work. The di- 
vers had stopped all the openings and 
the work of pumping the vessel out 
and r ais i ng he r was pro gressin g wa t te- 
faptorily. The Newport was more 
than half raised when the bulwark 
plating collapsed. x The steamer be- 
gan to fill, and In less than a minute 
was again at the' bottom. 

Four divers, who were under deck, 
had a close call, being compelled to 
swim but through the hatchway and 
ashore in order to save their lives. In 
patching up the openings in the hull 
tho divers had exceedingly hard work. 
They had to cut passage ways through 
the cargo, and as' there was much barb 
wire stowed below, their difficulties 
can easily be Imagined. The cargo 
was badly damaged, and it is feared 
there will be considerable loss

In the Paths of Steamers 

PORT TOWXSEND, Nov. 16.— United 
States revenue cutter Tahoma arrived 
yesterday from Neah Bay where the 
vesse] was stationed during the recent 
pales. On Thursday off Waadah island 
the Taihomn picked up a dory belonging 
to the power schooner Pearl which had 
been carried away during Tuesdays 
pule. The Pearl escaped without mis- 

On Friday night the Tahoma sighted 
a raft of logs containing fifteen or 
twenty sections axlrlft four miles north- 
east Of Dungeness. The raft wbjb in- 
tact. It had no lights and Is a serious 
menace to vessels navigating the strait 
after dark. 

Lieut Malloy of the Tahoma, says the 
strait is full of drifting Ioks and 
stumps all the way from Dungeness to 
Neah Bay, and as some of them are of 
Immense size, they are n menace to 
shlppinjf and he warns masters to keep n 
lookout for them.

Good Terms Can Be Arranged

The shipment of the western Canad- 
ian wheat crop has become a more acute 
problem every year. This is becauso 
the size and facilities of the eastern 
outlets could not a|pw|F*M»ep abreast 
with the increased acreage under cul- 
tivation and the larger yield from sea- 
son, to season, saya a writer In the cur- 
rent issue of T»e> t»*eUic Marine Re- 

The time hag arrived when another 
exit for Canadian wheat is required, 
and ' most . opportunely the Panama 
Canal will afford it The shipment 
eastward of the entire western crop 
is a laborious enterprise and economi- 
cally wasteful. 

The canal should enable a large share 
of the prairie products to go to the 
Pacific coast. The Hudson Bay railway 
may or may not act as a further relief; 
this remains to be proved, as there is 
some doubt as to the navigation facili- 
ties of Hudson Bay; for several months 
of the year the waters are not navlg-

In trying to arrive at the probable 
wheat crop In 1910, recourse must be 
bad to the production and Increase of 
the past ten years. The increase in 
wheat area in Manitoba is naturally 
not as great as in the other provinces, 
it having been the first to enjoy any 
considerable agricultural, settlement in 
the west The increase in Manitoba 
wheat area in c«n years was 968,000 
acres, or «S per cent; in Saskatchewan 
4,235.000 acres, or 903 per cent; in Al- 
berta, 1,688,000 acres, or 4,647 per cent, 
and in the total wheat area of the 
western provinces 6,784,000 acres, or 
269 per cent. 

The Increasing Crop 
In making comparisons between Vitfh - 
yields of 1900 and any other year, It 
must be remembered that the census 
.records of 1900 were exceptionally low, 
owing to drought It will be fairer 
to calculate the increases in wheat pro- 
duction since 1901. The gain in. Mani- 
toba since that date has been •■ip.000.600 
bushels, or 20 per cent; In Saskatche- 
wan. 86,000,000. or 781 per cent; in 
Alborta, 35,286,000 bushels, or 4.11,7 
per cent l and In the total Western pro- 
duction, 117,000,000 bushels, or 185 per 
cent These are remarkable Incre ases , 
and -'ttr^lW^tBcrlSie in the wwtern 
wheat area in the past ten years has 
been 269 per cent and the ,jaln in 
production 185 per cent, what witl be 
the wheat area and production' at the 
end of the next decade?- 

In estimating the probable increase, 
there are many Important factors of 
which cognizance must be taken. In 
the old portion of Manitoba, there are 
about 47,000,000 acres of land, with 
^33,000,000 acres of good arable/ land. 
The area under cultivation is only 
6,500,000 acres. Saskatchewan has a 
land area of 242,332 square miles, or 
155,092.480 acres and a water area 'of 
8,318 square miles. South of township 
64, which is practically the centre of 
Saskatchewan, the province has been 
divided ','Sqt statistical purposes .lWffi'; 
nine crop districts, as nearly as poss- 
ible uniform in size. The area of these 
districts is 86,826,240 acres and the 
crop area in them in 1911 was 8,602,455, 
or 9.8 per cent of their total area. The 
area under cultivation is 13,169,235, or 
15.16 per cent of the area of the dis- 
tricts referred to. 

In Alberta there are approximately 
100,000,000 acres of arable land, and of 
this area about 2,250,000 acres fixe un- 
der cultivation end occupied by farm 

More Railroads 
In 1914 two more transcontinental 
railways will open up much new land 
for settlement. The Improvement in 
farming implements wtll rnean the till- 
ing of greater acreage in less time. 
Tii< Be factors should compensate some- 
what for tho probability that mixed 
farming In the west will be engaged in 
more than hitherto; with consequently 
less attention to wheat, and for the 
fact that constant wheat growing 
makes the soil poorer. Assuming, after 
allowing for these factors, that the 
ratio of Increase!" the neit t^n years 
will be as ' great as In the past ten 
. therS will be In 1920 In the three 
western province*! wheat acreage of 
513,000,000 bushels. This allows a yield 
of 16 bush Is per acre, The average 
Wheat yield per acre in the w. si il;ir- 
int, the pas! four years was 19,17 bush- 
els, \ ■ bat figure as the yield 
of 1 9 J . the 84,621,000 acres should 
field 676,466,910 bushels. 

Every Outlet Required 
Thai is ;i crop I iai Will require every 
possible outlet and" cvfry available mar- 
ket; the Panama Cattal some years be- 
fore then will have made an Indelible 
mark upon the world's rommeree. 
Western Canadian shipments via our 

Pacific roast ports and the Banal will 
before that time have become a per- 
manent factor. 

The difference In distances by ship- 
ments east anil west Is seen by the fol- 
lowing typical figures; Calgary to Fort 
William, 1,260 mile*; Calgary to Van- 
couver. 644 miles. The suvlug by ship- 
ment westward Is 616 miles. Moose 
Jaw to St. John. 2,39?. miles; Moose Jaw 
to Vancouver, 1,085 miles. The saving 
by shipment westward Is 1,308 miles. 

The distance from Edmonton to Fort 
William is M57 miles, and to Van- 
couver 731 miles. The gateway to the 
Peace river country is, therefore, 716 
miles nearer the Pacific coast than to 
the head of the Great Lakes. The 
logical and economical result of this, 
coupled with the transportation facili- 
ties offered by the Panama Canal is 
obvious, end the Pacific coast Is des- 
tined to become an important outlet for 
the wheat crop, the Panama Canal 
carrying a large percentage ot tola.

Lagoon offers excellent boating and bathing, and there are fishing and shoot- 
ing of the best in season in the immediate neighborhood. 


Every resident of "SUMMERLAND" will have right and access to the Lagoon. 
~A T public landing is being provided at the loot of one of the principal streets, 
and this will be reserved for the use of ALL residents. All of the principal 
thoroughfares are to be graded at the expense of the present owners and free

Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription 

Is the nest of all medicines for the cure of diseases, 
disorders and weaknesses peculiar te women. It is the 
oily preparation of its kind devised by a regularly gradu- 
ated physician— an experienced and skilled specialist in 
the diseases of women. 

It is a safe medicine in any condition of tho system. 

TH E ONE REMEDY which contains no alcohol 

and no injurious habit-forming" drugs and which 

creates no craving for such stimulant*. 

THE ONE REMEDY so good that ita makers 

are not afraid to print its every ingredient on 

each outside bottle - wrapper and attest to tho 

truthfulness of the same under oath. 

It is sold by medicine dealers everywhere, end any dealer who hasn't it can 
Jet it. Don't take a substitute of unknown composition for this medicine of 
known composition. No counterfeit is as good as the genuine and the dru^ist 
who says something else is "just as good as Dr. Pierce s is either mistaken 
or is trying to deceive you for his own selfish benefit. Such a man is not to bo 
trusted. He is trifling with your most priceless possession— your nealtu— 
may he your life itself. Sei that you lit what you ask fir.

VANCOUVER, B. C, Nov. 16.— A 
features of the defence today in the 
action brought by the Department of 
Marine and Fisheries for the forfeiture 
of the American fishing vessel Thelma, 
which was seized on July 24 for il- 
legally fishing in Canadian waters, was 
a statement by Mr. Petor Carlsen, the 
owner of the Thelma, that the Captain 
of 'the Naiad, another revenue boat, was 
questioned about another vessel 150 
yard* from the Thelma at the time of 
the seizure and b*4 replied that It was 
on tide the three-mile limit. ,- 

Mr. Carlsen stated also that Captain 
Led well told him. that it did not matter 
If he were five miles from shore, as 
long as he was within a three-mile limit 
from headland to headland. Captain Led- 
well denied having such a conversation. 

Captain Ledwcll, In the evidence for 
the prosecution yesterday, said that 
when they first saw the Thelma they 
were, as near as possible on the three- 
mile limit, and It wa shortly after ten 
a'alook. She was on their stsrhnard bow

down upon her and found part of her 
seine net out. When the Newlngton 
came alongside a boat was jlowered and 
•the- T helma w as -boarded; Before this 
witness noticed fish jumping in the 
seine. At the time the Thelma's crew 
were hauling the seine to. They stopped 
hauling it in while witness was talking 
to the captain of the Thelma. He Aid" 
not actually see them take any fish 
aboard. There were a lot of fish In the 
hold of the boat. When the seine was 
taken aboard the purse was open and 
any fish there may have been In had 
gone free. 

In reference to the position of the 
Thelma the witness estimated that she 
was two and a half miles from shore. 
The Newlngton took the vessel in tow, 
steering magnetic north to the shore. 
They were running for sixteen minutes 
and the patent log showed- that they had 
run two miles. They were then a Quar- 
ter of a mile from shore. 

Questioned regarding the accuracy of 
the log, Captain Ledwell said a number 
of test cases had shown it to be as 
nearly accurate as possible. Witness 
said. he took his watch out the moment 
the Newlngton started to tow the Thel- 
ma towards the shore and held it in his 
hand until they ceased moving. The 
Thelma's captain was standing beside 

Capt. : ii: Hnllgren, navigating officer

liner City of Panama, here from Cen- 
tral American and Mexican ports, 
brought details of the hurricane of 
October 31, which destroyed nearly half

nut palms were torn up by the roots, 
and the surface of the sea was strewn

along the coast a few days ago. The 
wind blew at a hurricane rate, but the 
worst trouble came when the gale died

You Take a Banker's 

The summary of a proposition as set out hereafter should interest you, if you would accept the endorsement of 
a banker as regards the stability of a proposition. » 

• If your banker told you that a certain proposition which you would present to him contained at the same time 
the maximum security "and a definite promise of an appreciable profit— you would believe him, would you not? 

If the skilled physician enjoying a high reputation, after careful examination of a friend of yours, told you in the 
most emphatic manner that your friend had hopes' of recovery, or, on the other hand, that he was beyond all relief, and 
would surely and certainly die— would you accept such a definite statement as being correct? 

If so, then you will follow the trend of reasoning set out herein. 

Men determine the value of investments in real estate through the banker or financial expert, and in the case of 
a coal mine the value of the coal in same is determined only by and through an expert. 

Alexander Faulds, M.E., M. Inst. M.E., formerly of Glasgow, Scotland, is so well and favorably known through- 
out Canada and Great Britain as an authority on coal mining that his opinion on the property is accepted, in con- 
junction with the value of the coal mines, in the same light as you would accept the opinion of the expert banker or 

the skilled physician. 

' Mr. Faulds, after careful examination of the properties controlled by The Standard Coal Company, Ltd., of 
Vancouver, British Columbia, in a very comprehensive manner reports as. follows 

QUANTITY : 70,000,000 TONS COAL 

"From the geological evidences, the various out- 
crops of coal seams and development by The British 
Pacific Coal Company, 1AA., and the results of bor- 
ing by the B.C. Amalgamated Coal Company and The 
American Canadian Coal Company, Ltd., and from 
other available information gained by the reporter 
on Graham Island, we can approximately, and that 
very conservatively, from the facts indicating the 
ral permanence and continuity of coal seams, 
through the property, however variable they may be 
ln dcto tt g them horizontally and neglecting 

the dip subject to the geological effect of tilting. 
foldlns, faulting and loss In working, estimate such 
quantities of merchantable coal that will pass over 
IVi-inch spaced bar screen at 1,000 tons per acre per 
foot thick, which would amount to seventy million 
tons for an aggregate thickness of 36 feet of coal ln 
the three coal seams as developed In Camp Robert- 
son, and these, at an output of 1,000 tons dally, or 
one-quarter million tons annually, would last over 
250 years. 


"Your property is well situated, being on tide- 

"In Vancouver the selling prices per ton of 2,000 
lbs. of anthracite from I Ivania, tli-, Banff, $9; 

egg, stove and nut, $8. SO; Crow's Nest seml-anth in- 
cite sells at $9.50, and at Prince Rupert at $11. 

"That there is an abundant field for the invest 

ment of capital is shown by' the success attendant 
upon the operation of established enterprise. 

"Mrs. Joan Dunsmuir, now deceased, and wife of 
the late Hon. R. Dunsmuir, received from the Wi 1 
lington Colliery Company's operations in ton years 
$3,000,000, or $300,000 per annum. 

"Prom these operations the late Hon. R. Dunsmuir 
was made a millionaire and the capital furnished for 
constructing the E. & X. Railway on Vancouver 

"An averapo prof 11 of $773,755 per annum for the 
year* nf mot, loos ana 1909, the average profit T >PV 
ton of coal being $1.00, has been realized from these 
coals, after allowing for all expense*, other than 
depreciation or exhaustion of minerals, and allowing 
for the addition for 1909 of JjO.VT". interest on the 
mortgage of the San c'ranclsco properties, which 
wiere leased to the Western Fuel Company of N.mai- 
mo at a monthly rental and valued a t $1,000,000. 


"Vou know that the history of coal mining in 
British Columbia record shares offered In mines that 
are today the most prosperous and most profitable, 
as low as 10 cents Ter share at the Inception of the 
company operating mines. In many instances the 
shares are worth $100 i»r share today. The Crow's 
Nest Pass Company, in which shares were sold 
at 10 cents a share a few yours agO, brought the 
price of $3>!o.OO per share when the same were ab- 
sorbed 'ay the Great Northern 

"Your property Is proportionately as valuable a* 
any of those, and can produce a clear profit of $1.00 


"The value of 120 million tons of coal ln situ In 
your Mine Number 2 over the coal hearing area of 
4,000 acres, -would be $300 an acre, not including 
land and timber values. 

"These arc most important facts, absolutely essen- 
tial for appraising such properties. 

"Taking the estimated tonnage of 120 millions at 
fifty cents per ton profit would give $80,000,000, or 
$30 return, or 3,000 per cent, for every dollar in- 
vested, on a capitalization or $2,000,000. 

"The data and reasons for favorable conclusions 
have been carefully laid before you in this report, 
promising very profitable returns of fifty cents per 
ton on 2,000 lbs. of coal, or a return of $30 for every 
dollar Invested, which is 3,000 per cent, resulting 
in n.leeining n capitalization of $2,000,000 ln about 
10 years."

office at the City of Vancouver, B.C., was organized

Mr, Rowland Machin Returns 
From Trip to Antipodean 
Continent, Canada Better 
Land for the Immigrant. . 

Mr. Rowland Machin, who has Just 
recently returned to Victoria from a 
lengthy sojourn In Australia, In an In- 
ttrvuw with The Colonist yesterday 
had much of Interest to tell respecting 
his experiences in the antipodean con- 
tinent.- He said: 

"At the moment very great Interest 
Is given to the proposed construction 
of the trans-Australian railroad from 
erth, the capital city of Went Aua« 
•alia, to Port Plrie In Souto§$||* 

"While the government i* ettoW**i|«

<it| it jtouM W«W that vary n*aujr of 

the Immigrants moat experience (cap- 
ital or bo capital) very hard times. 
The character of the land la so spotted 
that to the Intending farmer it becomea 
a very serious problem where to locate. 
"There la certainly no money in 
farming small area*. The average 
farmer talk* off nothing leas than 100A 

to l MOB ma 3»UD ac r es, ana wime the 
Agricultural Bank is willing to and 
does advance money on conditional pur- 
chased lands, for the purchase of neces- 
such lands. It la 

farmers only a short time ago cora- 
plalne-d bitterly of being taken In and 
clone for by the Victoria (Australia) 
government. These farmers had gone 
to the so-called irrigation districts and 
Were supposed to have settled on the 
choicest spot In the state of Victoria. 

"The government of New South 
Wales, one of the states of the Com- 
monwealth, admits the cost to date is 
approximately twenty-three and a half 
million dollars for constructing rabbit- 
proof fences to control the spread of 
this fearful pest to pastorallst and 
farmer alike. Up to the present time 
the government of West Australia, the 
youngest and newest state of the Com- 
monwealth, has been compelled at an 
immense cost to put up rabbit-proof 
fences extending hundreds of miles. The 
fight as the years go on must become 
an expensive operation. It would be 
Interesting to know, first and last, the 
botal cost to date of the rabbit fight lii 
the whole of the Commonwealth. The 
money realized from the export of 
canned rabbit and skins would make 
a sorry showing to offset even the in- 
terest on capital expended in this dl- 
our Canadian farmers 
fcwbacks, should consider 
themselves doubly blest 

"As compared with the produotlan ST 
grain per acre grofm In ftamupfc.iisftyt 
all the fertilizers they can use, they 
■imply are not in It with our western 
farmer. When J told the farmers we 
had millions of acres in Canada that 
as virgin soil, would produce from t» 
to «0 bushels pf wheat or from «0 to 
100 bushels of oats to the aere they 
would hardly believe It. 

"We might In eoWbg new mmm

—giving them, say, a bi-weekly or trl- 
weekly-jwcvlca. — Tha aim JMfl .Pflffltfry 

of an extra expenditure of perhaps 
$200,000,000, you will prepare for these

Judging by the demonstration, ihe

The M. P. Cotton Co., Ltd., of Van-

Mr. M. P. Cotton, who signed the con-

easy to see that when we know that 
the generaj pracuce of cultivating such 

lands involves, first, an expenditure qj 
from *7.60 to |12.50 per acre to* : e|*is»* r 
ing and second, an application of chem- 
ical fertilisers costing from ?12.50 to 
$20 per acre; ve*y soon, if a man is 
to farm only 100 to 200 acres (thts for 
a beginner), and this he must do to 
pay his way at all — It means an expen- 
diture of several hundred pounds be- 
fore, as a green farmer, he has the 
chance to earn one penny. The one 
great drawback Is the necessity of us- 
ing artificial fertilizers on virgin soil, 
and It would appear from observation 
In the coast country that the heavier 
the growth of timber on the ground 
the greater the necessity of such fer- 
tilizing before even grass can grow fit 
for stock. Another serious drawback 
from a pastorallsfs point of view Is 
the presence in very many districts of 
poisonous grasses and palms. Most of 
the older settlers are continually tell- 
ing the "new chums" as the new ar- 
rivals are called, to look out ^ for 
'poison country.' 

Tarmlng on Shares 

"The Scottish Agricultural Commis- 
sioners who toured Australia In 1910 
say in their report: 'A man who is In- 
telligent and industrious, who has had 
•it exr*ericnce of. farming In Aus- 
tralia, but who has not enough money 
to buy land, cannot do better than turn 
his attention to farming on shares.' 

"It lit claimed .that the laws govern- 
ing leases of this character are copied 
from the English. It seems to me that 
if they are It must be from those of a 
very ancient date. 

"Anyone reading typical agreements 
re 'wheat growing on shares' and 
•dairying on shares' or 'share farming In 
New South Wales,' must certainly con- 
clude that every clause In such agree- 
ments gives., absolute control to the 
landlord, the tenant is simply tho good 
milk cow to be handled at the pleasure 
and will of the landlord. No English 
tenant farmer would permit himself in 
the Old Country to be bound by any 
such arbitrary agreements. When we 
take the showing made by an imml- 

int who Went to the Gund:utai dts- 
•t and who for two years had been 
dairying on shares, I think the average 
English dairy farmer would conclude 
nn reading the facts that at any rate 
he could do very much better in Eng- 
land. 1 cannot do better than quote 
his own words: 

"'I began with £80 and am now milk- 
ing 60 cows. I cultivate 30 acres and 
find the seed., I own the farming uten- 
sils. I receive one-half share of pro- 
ceeds of butter sold, less 2d. por lb. 
cost of manufacture. I receive one- 
half share of all pigs, and 7n 6d. per 
head for all calves reared 6 months old. 
My receipts for the last 12 months 
were £313 16s 4d After paying Wagi 
for one man and two girls, and all 
household expenses. I have banked £40 
($200) during the last year.' 
The Dairyman'* I.ot 

"We assume of course that this re- 
turn was for the best year, via, the 
second year. An analysis shows that 
for tho feeding and care of the calves 
he receiver 7s 6d ($1.80) per head (the 
maximum): most men get 6s (1.20) 
for the 8 months. For each calf per 
month, Is 3d (30c.) or l-2d (1 cent) per 
day. Inasmuch as mostly all the bull 
calves are killed at birth (In dairies) It 
Is fair to assume that BO per cent only 
would be heifers, and In that case for 
feeding and care of SO calves ho would 
receive Is 3d or 3,0c per day. An or- 
dinary dairy hand can easily see where 
the share-dairyman gets off under such 
an arnungement as this. 

"In a majority of dairies most of the 
calves are killed at birth and fed to 
the pigs without regard to sex. 

"Re domestic servants, about whom 
there Is so much said of an Inexhaust- 
ible demand. Here in Canada such 
women get from $20 to $25 per month 
(£4 to £6 per month). There In New 
South Wales general servants receive 
from 10a to 16s per week, cooks 16s to 
30s, cook and laundress IBs to ,20s, 
house and parlor rnalds 10s to 14a But 
as to the green Bxltlsher, who innocent- 
ly pays his own passage believing that 
he will be better off than the assisted 
immigrant, he o-- she Is easy prey to 
the employment agent first, who takes 
toll, and then in 9 cases out of 10 is 
humbugged into working for 10s to 12s 
per week and the poorest of tucker. 

"Thousands of British farmer*, lured 
by the bait of an assisted passage 
would gladly leave after a year's trial 
10 only they had money enough. .^ 

"A colony of well to do English 

1* to permit no body of farmers in new 
district* to ¥• iStlMfM 12 to 16 miles 
from a railroad. 

"The state of West Australia bae 
shown commendable enterprise In con- 
structing some years ago the stupend- 
ous dam known as the "Mundarlng 
Weir" a catch basin for many hundred 
thousands of acres of rain water, at a 
cost of nearly two million pounds ster- 
ling. Water is pumped from this point 
to Kalgoorie and Coolgardlc mines, a 
distance of nearly 400 miles. The struc- 
ture is an enduring monument to the 
engineer who designed it. From this 
main many miles of side pipelines have 
been laid to supply farmers who other- 
wise would have suffered great priva- 
tions the past season. The government 
charge Is 8s ($2.00) per 1000 gals, and 
it must be borne in mind that the ne- 
cessary power to do this work Is all gen- 
erated by coal. Water Is too valuable 
a commodity in that country to waste 
In developing electricity. 

"There are In the state a number of 
artesian wells, but unfortunately while 
furnishing stock water, much of the 
water cannot be used for Irrigation 
purposes. This is a great pity. Thou- 
sands and thousands of pounds have 
been spent for irrigation schemes, pub- 
lic and private. Most of the schemes 
Involve pumping, a fearfully costly pro- 
cess, in contradistinction to the gravity 
system employed In Canada. The only 
exception to this rule is now in course 
of construction In West Australia. But 
the varying character of the soil Will 
necessitate the concreting of every foot 
of the ditches and this will entail very 
heavy expense, with cement worth 17s 
6d (nearly $4.25) per barrel. 
The Sugar Industry 

The Commonwealth Is undertaking 
to protect the Queensland sugar indus- 
try, but at a fearful cost. It Is es- 
timated that for every man employed 
In the Industry the cost is equivalent 
to £300 ($1,500) per annum. The fear 
continually cropping up of being over- 
run by the Chinese and Japanese Is no 
doubt preventing the development of 
the tropicnl lands of the Island contin- 

"At the time of my visit the que?- 
tlon of a permanent home for (he gov- 
ernor-general was the burning issue. 
For a colony so conscious of Its need 
and dependency on the navy and army 
of the empire it seems a pity that such 
a question should ever have arisen. 

"Auckland, N.Z., Is an old- fashioned 
looking English seaport, where the 
lights aro still extinguished in the 
c;irly morning hour by a man with a 
lout,- stick, and electricity at that. Forty 
years behind the times, said one passen- 
ger. The civilized Maori woman was a 
disappointment. With a briar pipe In 
he.- mouth she paraded the principal 
business street like a sailor. The 
Maori men we saw smoking used cigars. 

"From Auckland to Suva, FIJI. Is a 
delightful run. The island I consider 
•one of the gems of the British empire. 
The i'ijlans are a fine looking race and 
surely are a happy looking lot. 

"The town and Island are overrun 
with Hindus four to one. They are 
brought on a five year contract. The 
men earn 24c. and the Hindu women 
18c per day.

Well Known Edinburgh Jour- 
nalist Writes on the Con- 
trasts Between Social Habits 
of People Now and Formerly, 

EDINBURGH, Nov. 16. — Mr. Hector 
M*cphcrson, the well-known Journalist, 
has written an article In which he con- 
traata the Scotland of today. In the 
social, moral and spiritual aspects of 
Ita life, with the Scotland (if a Ken- 
eration ago. He notes improvement l' 1 
the social habits of the people. "In- 
tamperance still casts a shadow over 
the national life, but within tho last 
generation the cause of Bobrlcty has 
made steady progress," he says. 

In this direction the influence of tho 
church, Mr. Macpherson says, has been 
highly beneficial. Worklngmen, as a 
class, are soberer and steadied ttoWl 
formerly, and with the Improved hoUB- 
ing conditions which now obtain there 
Is marked Improvement In. th«_ (social 
customs of the people. Habits of thrift 
are also more general. Bo ;mutfh for 
the profit aide of the account. 

The other side, as Mr. Macpherson 
points out, is not so satisfactory. The 
lower class workers, the casual labor- 
ers, the slum dwellers, and those whose 
only id.ia of home Is- the mMel ioaglHg 
house, are the despair oif social reform- 
ers. Mr. Macpherson complains, too, of 
the congestion of public houses In the 
lower parts of the cities and towns. 

Sitlavise for Dos 
"So long." he says, "as we place 
temptation in the way of the classes 
least able to resist it Scotland will bo 
afflicted with soi tal plague-spots of the 
most degraded type. It is surely cause 
for despondency that in Scotland' the 
drink bill is $80,000,000 per annum. It 
has been stated on high authority, that 
of the In te Lord An! well, that but for 
drinking In Scotland there would be al- 
most empty prisons, and Lord Guthrie 
has spoken in the same strain." 

In two directions great changes have 
taken place — widespread education and 
increased leisure. In answering the 
question: How Is the increased leisure 
of the people in Scotland being util- 
ized. Mr. Macpherson fears Intellectual 
Improvement does not hold the place it 
once did. Solid reading and study are 
not holding their own, even among the 
professional classes. Mr. Macpherson 
says that the music hall tends to sup- 
plant the mutual improvement society, 
and makes the statement that in Glas- 
gow alone there is spent in this form 
of entertainment $890,000 a year. He 
says: "The sad feature of the business 
is that Scottish songs, the native prod- 
uct, are now being driven out by drivel- 
ling doggerel. Imported from Kngland, 
rhyming rant which, when not border- 
ing on Indecency, is within measurable 
distance of Idiocj MBSP^tii 

Influence of Cbnxch 

On this point Mr. Macpherson writes 
not very hopefully. Young men arc 
drifting 'away from' |,hc churches. The 
Sunday schools arc well attended, but 
when lads reach the age of 16 or 17 
they tend to lapse. Mr. Macpherson 
adds: , 

"There can be no doubt that, as re- 
gards Sunday observance, a. marked 
change has taken place in Scotland. 
Family worship, which is a kind of 
spiritual barometer, Is on the decline. 
Here and there one docs come across 
a family where the old custom is held 
in honor, but In the hustle and bustle 
of modern life the hour once set apart 
for meditation on the unseen and 
eternal is encroached upon by the In- 
creasing deamands of a materialistic 
ag*. Attendance ot church shows a 
falling off. A generation ago both 
diets' of worship were well attended. 
Now a mere handful turn out to the 
evening service." 

He aslcs his readers, however, to 
guard against despondency in this mat- 
ter. Non-church koIok Is not a new 
problem in Scotland, or anywhere elsi . 
for that matter. .

-2^ ERSONS in whom the zest of life 
has not yet simmered down to the 
"lean and slippered" apathy of old 
age, will enjoy the opportunity, 
on Friday, Nov. 29, and Satur- 
day, Nov. 30, of seeing the pupils 
of the Victoria High School 
match their skill and strength 
against the representatives of 
Vancouver High School in their 
annual competition for the Thom- 
son cups. 

The first matches of this pro- 
vincial event will be held in Vic- 
toria at Oak Bay, and in the Y. 
M C A., after which the teams will face each 
Other in Vancouver in the final contests, upon 
which the disposition of the coveted trophies 
will depend. 

In each case it will be clean sport, full ot 
[he contagiousness of abounding youth, and a 
visualization of the high goal toward which 
the educators «.f these cities are striving. For 
it has come to be realized, perhaps more 
acutely than ever before, that healthy bodies 
are a wonderful asset in the upbuilding of 
mind and character, and- the training in the 
schools is being very actively turned in this 


Perhaps the most important event of the 
two-day tournament in Victoria will come 
when the rugbv teams face each other on No- 
vember 30, on 'the field at Oak Bay. At that 
lime the Capital City contingent will make 
Still another try for the much sought after 
rup. For several years this relic has been 
safely reposing in the keeping of Vancouver, 
and each contest has seen the Victorians go 
down to gallant, albeit unsatisfied .defeat be- 
fore their opponents. 

Victoria Optimistic 

This year, it is declared, the rosy promise 
?n the scholastic horoscope is that Victoria 
will win, and needless to say the youthful war- 
riors of this city are ardently nursing their 
tnthusiastic anticipations of carrying thetr 
:olors to a triumphant victory. Under the 
Joint efforts of Mr. A. Yates, the coach, and 
jf Mr. A. G. Smith, the president, the team, 
ibis year, has been made a very strong one,

and, on paper at least, has a very good chance 
to win. 

Practice games have been held each Thurs- 
day at Oa|c Bay, with scrum practice on the 
school grounds whenever the opportunity 
would permit. Mr. Yates, especially, has done 
much to build up the organization, and it his 
custom to don a sweater and actually take part 
in the game, instead of merely coaching the 

others from the side line*. 

Next in importance to the rugby game, will 
be the girls' hockey contest, which, also, will 
be held in Victoria on Nov. 30. The exact 
hours for these two events have not been ar- 
ranged, because it is not known, as yet, what 
calls other teams, not identified with the tour- 
nament, may have on the grounds. The time, 
therefore, will be announced in the press some 

time preceding the tournament. 

Unlike the case with rugby, the girls 
hockey team has been able to more >han hold 
its own against the Vancouver delegations, and 
the cup has been in the possession of the Vic- 
toria contingent nearly all the time. It may 
be taken for granted that the trophy will not 
be relinquished this year if the very charming 
and active little women in that team can help 


it. Certainly it will continue to keep the cup 
if Mr. Hope, the indefatigable and genial in- 
structor, has anything to do with it, for he is 
very much interested in affairs Victorian, and 
most loyal to his school and city. Like Mr. 
Yates, it is Mr. Hope's habit to go into the 
field personally during practice, and to assist 
his charges by actual example and practical 

New Basket Ball Team 

The Friday night game will be between 
the basket ball teams, which also promises to 
be an interesting exhibition. The Victoria or- 
ganization was only completed last week, and 
predictions as to its prowess are, therefore, 
premature. Nevertheless, it may be taken for 
granted that its members will acquit them- 
selves with credit, and that they will not go 
into the contest with any premature ideas of 

On the other hand, it is recalled that in all 
the previous contests of the Thomson tourna- 
ment, Vancouver has never been lacking in up- 
to-date material, and having a much greater 
field from ,which to draw its players, gener- 
ally been able to provide teams which could 
always be counted on to give a good account 
of themselves. The record of its victoria is 
striking proof of this fact. 

In any event, the games in Victoria and 
Vancouver are sure to be splendid exhibitions, 
and a credit to all the pupils participating in 
them. Furthermore, they will be an encour- 
aging evidence of the progress of the schools 
in athletics for which the teachers are striving. 
Probably mention ought to be made of the 
fact, in referring to the rugby team, that Cap- 
tain Cedric Tuohy and Eric McCalhim have 
played for the school longer than any other 
members of the team ; this is Tuohy's fourth 
year, and McCallum's third. These two am 
really the backbone and half the effectiveness, 
of the team

1 1 E most outstanding figure 
among the rulers of the allies 
ir. the Balkan struggle IS un- 
doubtedly Ferdinand of Bulgaria. 
It is only a few months over a 
quarter of a century since Prince Ferdinand 
of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha assumed the duties of 
government in the principality which twenty- 
one years later he was to declare a kingdom. 
It was in July, 1887, that l ^c Bulgarians elect- 
ed him to the vacant throne, and on August 
14, at Tirnovo, the ancient capital of the Bul- 
garian czars, he took the oath to observe the 
con^itut«|j^H^|p-~'adopted country. In-i a 
week later he made his entry into Sofia, and 
assumed his new functions as ruler. 

I Ban 

Under the Ban of the Powers 

The task which- lay before the young sov- 
creign was no easy one. It was exactly a year 
since his predecessor, the gallant Prince Alex- 
ander, had been seized in his palace by the 
troops whom he, had led to victory, compelled 
to Sign his abdication, and transported to Rus- 
sian soil at Reni. Throughout his reign of 
seven years Prince Alexander had been con- 
fronted with the problem of reconciling the 

determination of the Bulgarians to assert their 
independence with the claim of Russia to keep 
the newly liberated nation in leading-strings. 

r de t e rm i n e d to a dop t , a n a ti o n a l 
icy, and the part which he played in the ^St- 
ern Roumelian revolution sealed his fate. "'The- 
nation, as a whole,, was with him, as was 
shown by the counter-revolution which 
brought him back to Sofia, but Russian in- 
fluence was still strong in the country, and 
after his departure the task of opposing it fell 
on the dauntless Stamboloff. Russia had al- 
ready denounced the union with Eastern Rou- 
melia and had urged Turkey to reconcp.ter the 

revolted province; she now forbade the can- 
vacation of the Grand Sobrayne for the elec- 
tion of a new prince and withdrew her repre- 
sentatives from Bulgaria. A number of mili- 
tary revolts organized by her adherents were 
crushed by Stamboloff with ruthless severity. 
and the country was still in a distracted con- 
dition when Prince Ferdinand ascended the 
vacant throne. There is reason to believe that 
from the outset he realized the necessity of a 
reconciliation with Russia, but time and pa- 
tience were needed for this purpose, and at 
first he had little choice but to harmonize his 
policy with that of the strOng-willed dictator 

denounced by Russia as a usurper and dis- 
owned by Austria ; the other powers stood 
aloof in deference to Russian susceptibilities, 
while the grand viscier 8j|i»t |im a telegram de- 
daring his presence in Bulgaria to be illegal. 

Domestic Difficulties 

The difficulties of the external situation 
at this time found ar counterpart in domestic 
troubles, and for some years the position of 
the young prince was precarious in the ex- 
treme. The bishops of the holy synod, led by 
thf Rnssnphilf Afrhhfahrm Hempm, rrfntfd 

to do him homage and were expelled from So- 
fia by Stamboloff. Brigandage, encouraged by 
Russian agents, was rife ; a raid on Burgas was 
att g #jk i |d f i by th e - Rus s ian -€aptjtm~Nabokoff j 
M. Belcheff, one of Stamboloff's colleagues, 
was shot in the streets of Sofia, and DivVulko- 
ffiprh. the Bulgarian representative at Constan- 
tinople, was assassinated. A military con- 
spiracy was discovered in time by Stamboloff, 
and its leader, Major Panitza, was executed. 
The arbitrary measures of repression adopted 
by Stamboloff, though perhaps imposed by 
circumstances, raised up a host of enemies 
against the new regime and were watched with 

many misgivings by the prince, who was com- 
pelled to endorse the high handed policy of his 
autocratic prime minister." The breach be- 
tween them gradually widened, and in 1894 

Stamboloff resigned office. A year later he 
was murdered in the streets of Sofia by a party 
of Macedonian conspirators in revenge for tin- 
death of Panitza. 

During these anxious years Prince Fer- 
dinand derived inestimable advantage from the 
counsels of his mother. I 'inn ess Clementine; a 
highly gifted lady, whom Gladstone described 
as one of the cleverest women in Europe. A 
daughter of King t*ouis Ph.illippe of France, 
the princess, while still a girl, was accustomed 
to advise her father on matters of state; she 
possessed a masculine strength of character, 
and a; statesmanlike perspicacity of judgment, 
and it was largelyTowing to her initiative that 
her son embarked on his perilous adventure* 
which she was resolved to bring to a success- 
ful issue. Through her own or her husband's 
family she was connected with many of" the 
principal sovereigns of Europe, including 
Queen Victoria,- who was much attached to 
her; she was acquainted with most of the lead- 
ing figures in the political world,- and she skil- 


fully utilized he r r e lationsh i ps and ' fri e ndships 
in her son's cause. Until her death, which 
took place in 1907, she spent a portion of every 

year in Bulgaria, keenly interesting herself in 

the wel%rf 0i*he cojuntty and winning the re- 

spect of all classes of the people. 

Reconciliation With Russia 

With the fall of Stamboloff the moment ar- 
rived for a reconciliation with Russia. In 
April. 1893, Prince Ferdinand had marr,ied 
Princess Marie Louise of Bourbon-Parma, 
whose premature death in [899 was univer- 
sally deplored in Bulgaria. The princess' fam- 
ily had insisted that the issue of the marriage 

should be brought up in the Catholic faith, and 
the constitution had been altered for this pur- 
counteract Bulgarian influence in Macedonia, 
pose. The breach with Russia hail thus been 
deepened, but after the death of the Czar 
Alexander III. in 1894 an arrangement became 
more feasible, and the reconciliation was prac- 
tically effected by the conversion of the heir- 
apparent. Prince Boris, to the orthodox faith 
(February 14, 1896. This event was speedily 
followed by the recognition of the prince by the 
sultan and the powers. 

With the legalization of the prince's posi- 
tion the long period of tension came to an end, 
and Bulgaria ceased to be regarded as the 
storm centre of Europe. The time of proba- 
tion was over. Prince Ferdinand's statesman- 
like qualities now met with general recogni- 
'vj$h and his presence in Bulgaria came to be 
regarded as a guarantee* of peace,; The influ^ 
ence of Russia now became predominant in 
the. country, but Russia, taught by experience, 
wisely refrained from interfering -in its inter* 
nal affairs. One serious cause of anxiety, how- 
ever, remained. The reconciliation, w^th '.Rus r 
sia rendered the Macedonian question more 
acute owing to the belief prevailing amon^ the 

Bu l g a rian s on either ridf of th e Turkish fr o n 

tier that Russia would now insist on. the \$$*> 
filment of the Treaty of San Stefano and the 
union of their race^ The Macedonian agjta- 
liuiHi nilieas ei l after the vis it of the G r a nd .B j tfkc 

and in 1908 the outbreak of the Young Turk 
revolution brought affairs once more to a crisis. 

The Proclimation of Independence 

It was widely felt, in Bulgaria that the 
trouble in Turkey afforded a gulden oppor- 
tunity for the achievement of national unity, 
while the prince, who noted the sympathy 
which the Young Turk movement had aroused 
in Europe, resolved on maintaining a policy of 
caution. But a slight put upon his representa- 
tive at Constantinople by the new Turkish 
government, and the action of the powers, who 
insisted that the Bulgarian portion of the Ori- 
ental Railway Company's line, which had been 
seized by the government, should be restored 
jW^jTurkey, produced a state of feeling in Bul- 
garia which could not be ignored, and on Octo- 
ber 5, .1908, the prince proclaimed at Tornovo 
the independence of Bulgaria, and assumed 
the title of Czar Of the Bulgarians. ; ' '<; 

The. record of the past twenty-five years is 
such as to afford ;<li£ltqfc$lfe satisfaction to the 
%kfrfW^:fM people of Bulgaria. The prog- 
rj|«s ibf the youngest state in Europe has been 
extraordinary. The condition of the people 
has greatly improved ; education has made 
w a nd a rful strid«g, and th e c o mm e rcial a nd in 

Nicholas.. General Ignatieff. and a number of 
Russian officers to Bulgaria in 1902. The 
.movement, though discouraged by official Rus- 
sia, gained ground, and in the following year 
a revolt broke out in Macedonia. The insur- 
rection was suppressed with great barbarity, 
and the consequent excitement in Bulgaria put 
the prince's statesmanship to a severe test. 
The agitation vvas maintained in subsequent 
years owing, to the efforts of the Greeks to 

dust ri al development of the country has been 
equally rapid. Bulgarian credit now stands so 
high that the conversion of a large- portion of 
--the public debt can be carried out on advanta- 
geous terms. The country has been covered 
with a network of railways, and new ports have 
been constructed at a heavy outlay. The 
dynasty has survived a long period of storm 
and stress; it is now firmly established, and its 
position has been further assured by the king's 
marriage with Princess Eleonore of Reuss- 
Kostritz, the present queen, whose beneficent 
activity in many directions has endeared her 
to the Bulgarian people. 


Whatever the true explanation of the 
abrupt abandonment of the British army ma- 
noeuvres may be, it is undeniable that the 
aeroplane makes it harder than ever to play 
the war game satisfactorily. Before the ad- 
vent of the aeroplane victories were won or 
lost in peace manoeuvres by Ihe decision of 
umpires who were bound by hard-and-fast 
rules. A brigade was led into or surprised in 
a certain position commanded by masked bat- 
teries, and an alert umpire marked the brigade 
destroyed or captured and ordered it out of 
action. A cavalry patrol rode into the "pres- 
ence" of a superior force and was eliminated. 
A general and his staff ventured too far into 
the enemy's territory and were surrounded. 
It must be evident that the evolutions of the 
tAventy-four aeroplanes attached to the con- 
tending armies in England did not simplify 
the work of the harrassed umpires. 

There can hardly be any secrets of strength 
and organization or any advantage or handi- 
cap of position which an aviator with powerful* 
binoculars cannot detect in a war game. It is 
more like play for him than it is for the march- 
ing and countermarching soldiers; his only 
risk is that inseparable from managing his ma- 
chine. If he has a wireless outfit he instantly 
flashes his. discoveries by code, and without 
this adjunct he ca'» re;vrt in person in per- 
haps one-seventh of the time it would take a 
cavalryman to gallop to headquarters. Twelve 
aviators with the Red Army and as many with 
the Blue Army must make it physically diffi- 
cult for the commanders to complete any ela- 
borate strategic operation in a war game, for 
they can rarely hide or dissemble their move- 
ments — certainly not in the open country, 
where the British manoeuvres arc held. It is 
probably true that the war game ended in a 
"glorious muddle." General Sir John D. P. 
French, director of the manoeuvres, must be 
grimly amused, for. although the author of 
standard books on cavalry tactics, he seldom 
distinguished himself in peace manoeuvres be- 
fore the Boer War, and during that conflict he 
proved himself a brilliant strategist and uni- 
formly successful in the field. 

As the aeroplane has become indispensable 
for serious military operations, having revo- 
lutionized reconnaissance, it is plain enough 
that night inarches and also night assaults 
must be the rule and not the exception when 
two armies come within striking distance of 
.each other, and it follows that each armv must 
be equipped with powerful searchlights to 
warn it of the advance of an attacking force. 
In the darkness the usefulness of aeroplanes 
for reconnaissance is greatly impaired, even 
when they carry some kind of searchlight; 
moreover, its is almost impossible to command 
the stability of the machine at night, and it is 
altogether out of the question if a strong or 
fluky wind is blowing. 

If aeroplanes in actual warfare arc going to 
keep armies or sections of armies apart by 
preventing the execution of forward move- 
ments, except at night, aggressive war in the 
air becomes imperative. Each flying machine 
must have its light gun and supply of shells or 
other explosives to destroy the enemy's scouts, 
and until the aerial conflict is over operations 
on the earth below are not likely to be de- 
cisive. "Providence," said Napoleon, '.'is al- 
ways on the side of the last reserve." In wars 
of the future the last reserve may prove to be 
the survivors of the aeroplane duel. — New

ecretary Wilson, of the United States de- 
partment of agriculture, said the othe/ day: 

"It has become the fashion for everybody 
to declare that the profit from the high cost 
of living all goes to the farmer. W'c hear on 
all sides about the farmer's automobile and 
talking machine, his Persian nigs and player 
piano, his wife's furs, his daughter's college 
education, and so forth and so on. 

"We must take these statements with a 
grain of salt. I wish the farmer all the sue ■ 
in the world, but there's far more accuracy in a 
story I heard the other day than in all this talk 
of rural luxury and opulence. 

"A city chap, the story ran, went on a farm 
to help with the harvesting in return for his

As victors in the Inter-city competition, 
open for. police teams in first aid to the in- 
jured, the Victoria force holds the proud posi- 
tion of premier aggregation in the province. 
On the occasion of the recent visit of His 
Royal Highness, the Duke of Connaught, to 
Victoria, the local force -demonstrated its su- 
periority over the outside teams, winning both 
the Lieutenant-Governor's cup and also the 
cup presented by Sir Richard McBride. and, 
in -addition, Constable Brogan captured the 
Victoria Cross event. His Royal Highness. 
who is head of the Order of St. John of Jeru- 
salem, and president of the St. John's Ambu- 
lance corps, heartily congratulated the police 
team on its handsome victory over all comers. 

The prizes were distributed -by Her Royal 
Highness, following the competition at Gov- 
ernment House. 

A year ago first aid work was taken up by 
the members of the local police department and 
the success of the team at the recent competi- 
tion is testimony to the efficient instruction 
given by Dr. Donald, who lectured to the 
force. Hard work was done by the members 
of the team in preparing for the competition, 
and Dr. Donald was ably assisted by Con- 
stable Brogan, who, besides holding a certifi- 
cate of the St. John's Ambulance corps, is also 
possessor of certificates of the St. Andrew's 
Association, the Scottish branch of the Asso- 

KmTiSSfii EMORIES of the saddest marine 
tragedy in the history of the Pa- 
cific coast will be recalled to old 
residents by the following letter 
sent to The Daily Colonist by 
Mr. Kdgar Fawcett. the veteran resident and 
' publisher of this city- It reads: 

Lasl week, the November 4, was the thirty- 
seventh anniversary of this great marine cal- 
amity, the greatest that ever occurred on the 
Pacific coast, when out of 300 passengers and 
crew there were only two saved, J. Jelly and 
Neil O'llenley, the latter the quartermaster. 
1 well remember the night, or to be more par- 
ticular the morning, at 2 o'clock that I was 
awakened from sleep in San Francisco, at the 
house of my friend, where I was visiting, to 
tell me that news had arrived that the Pacific, 
that 1 was to go home in, in a few days, was 
lost with all on board. There was very little 
more sleep for me that night, as I knew that 
there would likely be many Victorians aboard, 
as it was the fall of the year, when so many 
came south to spend the winter. The next 
day I went to the steamship offices, and found 
thf steamer Los Angeles was to take the Pa- 
cific's place, so I got my ticket transferred for 
that steamer. She was much smaller than thf 
Pacific, and had over -250 passengers aboard. 
Very few had berths, the rest sleeping on 
stretchers, on the floors, and on tables. 1 had 
a room with Mr. \V. F\ Archibald, who was 
coming to take charge of the telegraph office in 
Victoria. Anions the passengers was Mr. 
Samuel Moote, who had married the eldest 
daughter of Sheriff McMillan* He came np to 
offer a reward for the recovery of the body of 
his wife, who was one of the ill-fated passen- 
gers on the Pacific. 

Wc reached Victoria on a Sunday after- 
noon, and found the city in mourning for lost 
friends, some of whom I remember now. There 
was Miss Fanny I 'aimer, who has a brother 
living here still. She had been going to Sail 
Francisco to spend the winter with a sister; 
there was Scwell P. Moody, a mill owner, of 
Moodyvilie, who has nephews living here. 
There were Mrs. S. T. Styles and daughter, 
wife of the late S. T. Styles, of Amelia street. 
Also the well-known 1. II. Sullivan, gold com- 
missioner of Casstar, and Francis, Garesche, o» 
Garesche's bank ( father of A. J. Garesche, den- 
tist ) who had $500,006, including $30,000 in 
gold dust with him 

From The Colonisl of Nov, 9, 1S75. 1 glean 
some items, but news of that day seems to 
have been much abbreviated. On that day the 
news was received by steamer from Pugct 
Sound, as the telegraph was down, as often 
happened then. It was the bare announcement 
that a vessel had picked up a man (II. F. Jelly) 
who had hen a passenger, and who had been 
two. or three days floating about tied to a hen 
coop. Some days later, a second man (Neil 
O'llenley ) was brought to Victoria, wdio had 
been picked up by a passing vessel, and taken 
to San Francisco; he was Quartermaster Neil 

There was a coroner's inquest held on the 
body of J. D. Crowley, which had floated to 
the beach at -Beacon Hill, before Judge Pem- 
berton. father of Mr. Charles Pemberton. the 
solicitor. The jury was composed of the fol- 
lowing well-known pioneers, James Fell, Alex. 
Wilson, C. T. Seymour, James R. Raymur 
(father of water commissioner), AV in. Wilson 
(draper), and J no. R. Adams, father of Frank 
Adams (P. B. Marvin & Co.). Mr. A. R. Rob- 
ertson, Q.C. (father of Dr. and Solicitor Rob- 
ertson) represented the steamship" company. 

The evidence given by N. O'Henley proved 
that only three men were on watch at the 
time the steamer ran into the ship Orpheus, 
which had run across the steamer's bows. The 
Orpheus then made off. and was eventually 
wrecked in Barkley r Sound, near Capt. Spring's 
trading post. When the witness, O'Henley 
stated that there were only three men on 
watch on deck at the time of the steamer's 
striking, Capt. Raymur, one of the jury, ex- 
claimed, "Good God! was that all? no wonder 
there was a disaster." (Sensation). Neil O'Hen- 
ley also stated that he had been 76 hours 
floating on part of the hurricane deck, that for 
a great part of this time there was a young 
woman with him, but that she spent most of 
her time in tears, and praying to God for 
mercy. She eventually died from exhaustion 
and exposure, leaving him to himself. This 
disaster cast a gloom over our city r for months, 
for bodies of the victims were washed up on 
the beaches of the straits for weeks. 

The body of Miss Fanny Palmer was found 
on the beach on San Juan Island, near the 
U.S. garrison, just three weeks after the disas- 
ter. It had floated no miles, back to her 
home, or, at least, in sight of it. This recalled 
a story told of her departure, when some of 
her friends jokingly implored- her ."not to 
leave" them, indicating that they feared she 
might not come back. 

"Oh. I'll be back before you think, maybe." 
was her reply, and her strange return seemed, 
after the tragedy, to take on the significance 
of a fateful prophecy, the meaning of which 
she herself did not realize. The funeral of 
Miss I 'aimer took place Sunday, Nov. 25, in a 
snowstorm, from the Reformed Episcopal 
church, which was full to overflowing, the 
sidewalks in the immediate vicinity being lined 
by people. Mishop fridge read the burial 
service. The pall-bearers were J. 11. Gray, 
W. II. Pinder, John Nicholles, Cornelius 
Thorn, J. McB. Smith, Richard Jones. Six 
young ladies, dressed in white, followed — MlSS 
C. Charles, Miss Baxter, Miss Munro, Miss 
Todd, Miss Wylde, Miss Robsoni The hymn, 
"Nearer My God to Thee," was sung.

The Copley-Pla>-a, Boston's new hotel, is 
regarded as the last word in the matter of fire 
protection, and is said to b c the first hotel 
building on the continent which meets every 
requirement of the schedule, and even goes 
beyond it The application of the fireproof 
mercantile schedule used by the Boston board 
makes a rate of 15 cents on the building, and 
on contents of 22.1 cents. The insurance is 
written at three rates for five years, with the 
80 per cent, clause. The application of the 
schedule shows perfect construction, the only 
charge made being the unavoidable one of I 
percent gross for electric lighting. There are 
no vertical openings anywhere in the building, 
every floor being absolutely cut off by fire- 
proof shafts. The elevators are within brick 
stair towers, cut off from the building on every 
floor and from the stair wells, and all dump 
waiters are in fireproof shafts, with automatic' 
fire doors at each Opening. The kitchen is in 
a separate fireproof section, with steel furni- 
ture, and the kitchen, laundry and baggage- 
room are equipped with automatic sprinklers.

face. "You ask why.'' Because they wouid

pect her immediately to have the gifts it has 
taken me a lifetime to acquire." 

"It must be very hard work to become a 
singer," suggested the interviewer, seeing the 
opportunity of obtaining a glimpse into the 
world famous songbird's own early struggles. 

"Hard?" she echoed. "Yes, it is hard. So 
very hard that one must sink almost every 
other interest in the work. I have worked 
hard, but, perhaps, it has been worth while. 
It is success that makes things worth white, 

IMP see, that . «* only a 

singer. I am also „ 

A little later the presence of the girl seemed 
to awaken a new train of thought in the diva's 

mind. tn , , . 

. "Do you know, some people say Gadski 
must be getting old,"" she said almost whim- 
sicallv, and then broke into 'a gay little laugh, 
in which her daughter, and Mr. Schneider, her 
accompanist, joined heartily. "They remember 
how many years it takes to prepare oneself for 
the opera ; how many years after that one must 
work to attain anything like success, and they 
couple these facts with the knowledge that I 
have been in this country. America. 1 mean, 
a great many years. So they say, 'Gadski must 
be getting old.' 

"They forget that I began to study when 
I was seven years old. and that when I was 
seventeen years old I began to sing in Berlin. 
Three years later I came to America, and. 
well—I do so want Canadians to like me," she 
broke in upon herself irrelevantly. "I have 
heard that once they do like you. they always 
remain loyal. After all. it is the audience 
which helps one to do one's best !" 

She leaned across the tray of tea cups and 
began to talk very earnestly. 

"Why, you can absolutely feel what the 
audience thinks of you." she said, her eyes 
alive with fire. "If they like you— and you 
can feel it, my friend, believe me— there is 
nothing you cannot do.. I have sung in arm- 
ories, on this concert trip, and in skating rinks, 
and, er— in barns, almost, but if they liked me, 
i did not care. 

"I have frequently been asked which of my 
roles 1 like the best," she went on, "and it is 
a very hard question to. answer. There are so 
many things to be considered, and yet, per- 
haps, I have the greatest liking for Isolde. 
And the reason? Well, perhaps it is because 
it offers a greater range of effort. In one part 
n U intensely dramatic, and I like that. In 
another part 'it is lyric, and very, very beauti- 
ful, and that, too, I like. Therefore, if there 
are some in the audience who do not like you 
in one part, they may in the other," she con- 
cluded sagely. . 

"Very frequently I am asked if it makes tor 
a woman's ultimate happiness to deyote^her 
whole life to art and a career," she said. "My 
answer to that is always the same. If the 
woman can succeed in her art, it is all right for 
her to gi\e her life to it. If not, well, then per- 
haps it is as well that she devote herself to a 
home and the kitchen. The sad part of it is, 
perhaps, that so many think to devote their 
'whole lives to a career fend then find they have 
failed, and have wasted their years. That, of 
course, is the hard part of it, and it is from 
any chance of anything like this^that I have 
determined to save my daughter." 

Madame Gadski, during the conversation, 
made reference to English composers, and said 
the) ought to be encouraged. 

"I sing in English whenever I can for this 
reassn," site declared. "1 owe a great deal to 
America, for it is there that I have practically 
made ntv successes, and where I have spent a 
great part of mv life." 

The diva called attention to the fact that 
upon her return to New York city and the 
Metropolitan Opera Company she is to appear 
in one of these modern productions, and it was 
plain to be seen that she looked forward to the 
time with a great deal of pleasure. 

In a way her new part in this opera will 
be a distinct innovation for her, since she has 
scored her greatest successes in the German 
plays. Last season she appeared very fre- 
quently as Elsa in Lohengrin, as Isolde in 
Tristan and Isolde, as the Princess in Lobe- 
tanz. as Gertrude in Versiegelt. and as Brunn- 
hilde in Gottcrdammerung. and in all of them 
she met with extravagant praise. 

"In my contract with the Metropolitan, it 
is arranged that I have six weeks in every year 
for concert work," she said, as the interview 
came to an end. "This time I determined to 
come to Canada, and I am not sorry. I say, 
this sincerely. Everybody has been most 
kind. It has been four years since I visited 
Victoria test, and I have only the kindest 
memories of it. I am aure that this time I sMU 
take away with me equally happy thou^ta.'*

Egypt Under the Ptolemies 
On the death of Lathyriis, or Ptolemy 
Soter II., there were two claimants to the 
throne, his widow, Cleopatra Berenice, and the 
latter's stepson, the young Alexander. Alex- 
ander had been living, for some time in Rome, 
under the protection of Scitla. The island of 
Cos, which had been his boyhood home, as it 
had been the stronghold of the Ptolemies for 
many generations, had fallen into the hands of 
Mithridates, king of Pontus, who had con- 
quered all of Asia Minor. Mithridates had 
captured anothep^^RCLJrpm -the king s palace 
at Cos, in the shape of the chlamys, or war- 
cloak, which had belonged to Alexander the 
(jffeat. The old soothsayers had prophesied 
that when this war-cloak should leave Egypt, 
that country would forever lose heW prestige 
among {he nations. From 'Mithridates. it 
passed to Pompey, who wore it on his pwit 
shoulders at the triumphant close of the Mith- 
ndatic war* 

It suited the Romans to back Alexander's 
claims yto' the throne, for theyOfiing prince had 
ivrnmitirjf; Sdlla that in return far the Roman 

what extraordinary that these kings, in BO 

many other ways objec&jqnable, .should have 
been ready to admit the equality of men. 
Charles, Count of Valois, had also done the 
same thing. Indeed, during the previous two 
centuries it had been the cusiom of land- 
owners to manumit their slave-.., although it 
was by no means generally followed. Ppilip 
the Handsome, in the decree made by him in 
regard to the serfs on the estate.' which he 
■ gave to his brother diaries of Valois, said : 
"Seeing that every human being, which is 
made in the image of Our Lord, should gener- 
ally be free by natural right." Louis the 
Quarrellcr, in his decree, dated Jq|M. 131 5, 
said: "Whereas according to natural right, 
every One should be born free, and whereas by 
certain customs, which long time ago have 
been introduced into our kingdom, many per- 
sons among our common people have fallen 
into the bonds of slavery, which much dis- 
pleaseth us; we, considering that our kingdom 
•is called and named the Kingdom of the Free, 
and willing that the matter in verity should 
accord with the name, have by our grand coun- 
cil decreed and do decree that generally 
throughout oar whole kingdnm surh isrrfilnm 

some was 801 Otte oi national renown, it cer- 
tainly was pne of national advancement, It 
serves to emphasize the saying: "Happy is 
the people whose annals are not glorious!" 



Dust may be said to consist of a little bit 
of everything. As sand very often occurs in 
it, possibly many of the metals are represe 
also. As tar as is known, no part of the at- 
mosphere is free from it, and there is some 
reason for supposing that it may exist beyond 
the atmosphere. In pure country air there are 
estimated to be about 3.000 dust particles in 
every cubic inch. In the ^ oi a city there 
may easily be three millions in the same space, 
and in a teneinent house in a congested slum 
there malr be ^,000,000 in a cubic inch. The 
last-mentioned number seems almost incredi- 
ble, but there is good authority for it. 

Where does dust come from? One m«ty 
say from everywhere. When we walk along 
the pavement the friction of our boots on the 
surface grinds off minute particles, and some 
• of these are taken up in the air and form dust. 

When the tire on a motor car wears out, a 
very great deal of the rubber is diffused 
through the air in the form of dusti and so 
with e y e r y nth?t c ase w her » t her e is f ri ct ion 
bei^e«»C^ry substances, dust is produced^; It 
is even produced by the, wind, and by water, 
although in the case of the latter evaporation 
has -first to take place. Living vegetation is a 
great producer of dust, and so is dead vegeta- 
tion. Volcanoes cast great dust-clouds in the 
air. Sometimes it stays in suspense many 
months. Often in night we see flash into 
sight a star, which grows brighter and bright- 
er. Perhaps it leaves a glowing trail behind 
it. By and bye it breaks into fragments or 
perhaps disappears. The glowing trail is in- 
candescent dust, heated by friction with the 
atmosphere. The explosion into fragments 
means that the body of the meteor has been 
converted into dust. Sometimes, when the 
meteor grows dim and disappears, it has sim- 
ply passed beyond our range, of vision; but 
sometimes the disappearance is due to the 
wearing away of the solid mass into dust. The 
earth is bombarded by myriads of meteors 
every day. A few of these reach the surface 
of the earth in masses of varying magnitude, 
but in the great majority of cases they are 
converted into dust, which floats"- for a time in 
the air and then n the solid sur- 

face. As meteors come from we know not 
where, we ma- assume that some dust may 
have its origin in the depths of space at in- 
calculable distances from the earth. But 
wherever it may come from, whether from our 
wearing garments, our roadways, our forests, 
fields and gardens, from the bowels of the 
globe through volcano vents, or from some of 
the remotest spaces between the stars, it 
dances in the sunbeams and finds its way 
through the minutest openings. And so it has 
been for ages upon ages. 

7 'The presence of what is known as cosmic 
dust, that . is, dust formed from exploding 
meteors, is an argument against the eternal 
existence of the earth. Tt may be mentioned 
that this dust: is found upon \r-;ic and Ant- 
arctic snowfields. Although the mass of such 
dust that falls upon the earth in any one rear 
may not be verj -real, in an infinite number 
of years it would form a mass infinitely great. 
Therefore it logically follows that there must 
have been a time when this cosmic dust began 
to be formed from the debric of meteors and 
be deposited upon the earth. Tt follows, also. 
that the earth U graduallj . heavl 

unless, indeed, some of the dus4 formed on it 
IS carried off into space, and perhaps in the 
course of age-^ is picked up by some other orb 
that whirls through thai pari of space where 

our world has been. 

Dust is the source of much evil, as we all 

know. To it the spread of disease is often at- 
tributed. Nearly one fourth of all deaths are 
due to consumption. - r ,u\ this dread disease is 
due directly to the germs w Men und in 

dust, tl seems almost impossible to gel rid 
dangerous germs. In a model hospital in New 
York twelve living germs settled on an ex- 
posed experimental disc, where the air had 
no; reeentbj been disturbed, but the number- 
was two hundred and twenty-six when the cx- 
Itra was made after the room had been 
swept. On the other hand, it seems to have 
been demonstrated that there would be no 
condensation of moisture in the atmosphere. 
and hence no clouds ,,- rain or snow, if it weir 
not for the presence of dust. Possibly also 
dust aids the growth of vegetation by being 
carried' into the soil by the rain and therein 
increasing its fertility 



Tt is night at sea. All day long low clouds 
hid the sky. and now that dark has come. 
the got d ship feels her way towards the land. 
Somewhere ahead arc breakers, that mean 
death to those whohl their remorseless waves 
embrace. Somewhere ahead is a channel that 
leads to port and safety. The engine is at 
dead slow. In vain does the man on the bridge 
strain his eyes. The fog cannot be pierced by 
human vision. Strangely silent is the deck; 
the passengers do not care to talk. Only the 
hoarse note of the ship's. syren warning other 
craft of her presence breaks the stillness. The 
captain, poring over his chart, wonders if it 
would not be better to put out to sea and wait 
till the fog lifts a little. Suddenly comes a 

call from the looic-ouf: "A light on the port 
bow!' Every eye is turned in that direction. 

Landsman and sailorman alike watches it. 
1 lie .-hip creeps onward, and now the ear 
catches a faint murmui of distant waves break- 
ing. The captain hesitates no longer, for the 
glimpse of the light has told him where he is 
and what his course should be. The course is 
set, and the engines move a little faster. The 
; is lifting. Another light is seen, and it 
tells its story. Drifting fog banks may ob- 
scure these guides, but there is no danger now. 
The bridge calls for full speed ahead, and in a 
little while a pilot is sighted ; the pilot comes 
aboard, and in a few hours friends greet 
friends ashore and the voyage. is over. One 
glftttpse of th<e light was enough. 

What would we think of the shipmaster, 
who would refuse to heied the, warning and the 
lesson of the light, because he was. not quite 
satisfied with the architecture of the light- 
house, or was not on good terms with the 
lighthouse keeper, or perhaps was opposed to 
the government 1 which had hail, the lighthouse 
built ? Whatever we might say of 1 'aim, we

dictatOr*s] friendship, he would make a will be- 
queathing the kingdom of Egypt to Rome. 
What a very little while it has been since we 
h eard o f t he " y oung R o man nation - ap pe al i n g - 

for bare recognition from the great-grand- 
parents of the present Ptolemy! And now 

they could make and unmake Egyptian kings 
at their pleasure. 

So Alexander betook him to Egypt, and, ac- 
cording to the wish of Scilla, proposed to his 
step-mother that they marry and reign jointly 
over the country. So there was a great wed- 
ding feast, and the festivities lasted for nine- 
teen days. They were brought to a sudden 
termination then, as Alexander quietly mur- 
dered his new-made wife. However accus- 
tomed the Alexandrians must have become by 
this time to all sorts of atrocious crimes, this 
was more than they would bear. They did not 
want Alexander in the country anyway, for 
they felt that he was only the mouthpiece of 
Rome, so his own guards, when they became 
aware of the dreadful crime that had taken 
place in the palace, seized the young prince, 
dragged him to the gymnasium, and there put 
him to death. 

With Alexander the legitimate male line of 
the Ptolemies came to an end , and if the Alex- 
andrians had been wise enough and strong 
enough, what an oportunity had been theirs! 
'."hey might have formed a new government 
among themselves. They might have defied 
the Roman power, and reconstructed their 
once-glorious kingdom. But there seems to 
have been no man for the plate, no leader to 
bid rhem follow so noble a cause. Egypt was 
fast hurrying down the hill to the ruin that 
awaited her. . 

Soter II. had left two natural sons, and the 
eldest of these, Auletes, though only fourteen 
years of age, was made king. He reigned for 
twenty-nine years in Egypt, but he held his 
throne only through his frequent bribing of the 
Roman senate. He was in noway qualified for 
the position of ruler. He gave himself up at all 
times to pleasure and debauchery, and was the 
most wasteful of his heritage of all the many 
wasteful Egyptian kings. 

In this reign Cicero, Pompey, Caesar, Cato 
and Marc Antony figure very prominently. We 
are beginning to get among people whose 
names are familiar to all of us. Marc Antony, 
then master of the horse in the Roman army, 
made his first visit to Egypt, when Ptolemy 
Auletes. under Roman protection, marched 
against the Krvyptians who had rallied to the 
support of his daughter. It was he who re- 
fused to allow the citizens of Pelusium to be 
put to the sword, to gratify Auletes' desire for 

"The Egyptian army at this time," writes 
Rappoport, 'was in the lowest state of discip- 
line ; it was the only place where the sover- 
eign was not despotic. . . . The laws (in 
Alexandria) were everywhere badly enforced, 
crimes passed unpunished, and property be- 
came unsafe. Robberies were carried on 
openly, and the only hope of recovering what 
was stolen was to buy it back again from the 
thief. In many, cases whole villages lived 
upon plunder, and for that purpose formed 
themselves into a society, and put themselves 
under the orders of a chief; and when any 
merchant or husbandman was robbed, he ap- 
plied to this chief, who usually restored to 
him the stolen property on payment of one- 
fourth of its value. 

"As the country fell off in wealth, power 
and population, the schools of Alexandria fell 
off in learning, and we meet wdrh few authors 
whose names can brighten the pages of this 



Philip the Handsome left three sons. Mis 
eldest, Louis X., known as the Quarrellcr, 
succeeded him, to be following by Philip \\, 
sometimes called the Long, who, in his turn, 
was succeeded by Charles IV., known as the 
Handsome. Their reigns extended over a 
period of something less than, fourteen years, 
and were far from being glorious. Philip the 
Handsome had given the nobles great offence 
by his avariciousness and tyrannical conduct, 
and they wei»e not disposed to make things 
any easier than they were obliged to for his 
sons. One good thing is set down to the credit 
of- Louis X. He set free his serfs. His father 
had also acted in a similar way, and it is somc- 

be redeemed to freedom on fair and suitable 
conditions, and we will likewise that all other 
lords who have body men, do take example by 

An important and far-reaching feature of 
5 period in the history of France was the 

promulgation of what is known as the Salic 
Law, by which females Were debarred from 
occupying the throne of France. The Salian 
Franks sometime in the Seventh' Century 
agreed upon a law, -which provided that "no 
portion of the Salic land should pass into the 
possession of women, but should belong al- 
together to the virile sex." What is meai*; by 
this is not that a woman might not have the 
right to occupy land or transmit it to her chil- 
dren, but that the absolute fee should never 
be hers. It is not very easy to reconcile this 
idea with some Of the. facts of history, for, as 
we have seen in the course of these articles, 
certain territorial rights to countships de- 
scended in the female line. In respect to the 
kingship, from the time of Hugh Capet to the 
death of Philip the Handsome, the royal family 
was never without heirs male. When, how- 
ever, Louis the Quarrellcr died, leaving a 
daughter only, although his wife was about 
to become the mother of a second child, Philip 
the Long caused himself to be made regent. 
When the child was bom ii proved to be a - 
but he only, lived five day-. Mis name has 
gone; into French annals as John I. Philip 
thereupon insisted that he should be crowned 
king, claiming that the ancient Salic law pro- 
hibited his brother's daughter from ascending 
the throne. The clergy, the barons and the 
commonalty were summoned, and on February 
2, 1317, they solemnly declared that "the laws 
and customs of the Franks inviolably ob- 
served, excluded daughters from the crown." 
Froissart in his Chronicles said, "thus the kil 
dom, as secmeth to many folks, went out of 
the right line." Five years later, Philip died 
•and left only daughters. His brother Charles 
succeeded him. and the edict excluding daugh- 
ters from the succession was renewed. Charles 
died at the expiration of another five years, and 
left only daughters. Thereupon the right to 
the crown was asserted by Philip of Valois, 
son of Charles of Valois, brother of Philip the 
Handsome and grandson of Philip the Bold. 
This claim was disputed by Edward MI. of 
England, who asserted that the cirown of 
France was lawfully his because his mother 
was Isabel, sister of the late king and daugh- 
ter of Philip the Handsome. Out of this arc 
"The Hundred Years' War." which, in point 
of fact. lasted more than :< renturv. It was 
not indeed until after the victorious career of 
Joan d'Arc thai an end was put to the conten- 
tion of the !'.n. dish kings that they were the 
rightful sovereigns of France, and the name 
of that kingdom was dropped from their of- 
ficial title. A hundred and twenty-eight yfears 
later at a solemn council held in Paris ,the Salic 
Law was again declared to be binding, al- 
though Spain strenuously protested against it. 
On October 1, 1789, the law was again af 
firmed by a grand council held at Parts, but 
four years later the revolutionists beheaded 
the king and, as was then thought, put an 
end forever to the royal line. It is interesting 
to remember that the revolutionary court re- 
ferred to the king as Louts Capet. 

The period preceding the advent to the 
kingship of the House -l" Valois was a ma 
mentOUS one in respei I to 'he development of 

French institutions. Mention has been madi 
above of the beginning of the end of serfdom. 
Another marked advance was in the evolu- 
tion of the magistracy. The personal au- 
thority of the kin.; and the nobility over per- 
sons of h.wer rank rapidly gave way to the 
control of the courts, and in consequence to 
the development of a definite system of juris- 
prudence, which made life, libertv and pro- 
perty more secure, ft would be a mistake to 
suppose that all the ancient abuses were re- 
moved, for they wore not, but a very much im- 
proved social condition prevailed. The 
church, also, while losing a good deal of its 
control over the temporal affairs of the peo 
pie, was extending its influence over their 
lives. Personal piety began to lie insisted 
upon by the clergy, and the individual con- 
duct of the great body of the people was ele- 
vated to a higher plane. On the whole the 
people were better than their kings. If the 
half century from the accession of Philip the 
Handsome to the death of Charles the Hand- 

say that he was doing his duty; we would not 
commend him for the exercise of independent 
judgment. If he went further and said that he 
'Quid, not heed the., signal becaixae he was not 

gitris whether the molecular or vibratory theory 
of light is the correct one, we would set him 
down as insane. And if he should refuse to be- 
lieve his chart, because he had not himself 
made it, or his compass because he did not 
know why the needle pointed to the Magnetic 
Pole, we. would class him as an imbecile. 

There is a light that lighteth every man 
that cometh into the world. It is a safe guide 
to us all in our daily life. We can steer by it 
past all dangers into the haven that awaits us 
when the journey is over. But many of us 
ret use to heed what it tells us. We have never 
been over the course before, and though the 
experience of others demonstrates in what 
direction safety lies, we refuse to be guided by 
it. We tell ourselves that they may have 
been mistaken. No cha'-t will suit us unless 
we make it for. ourselves. Some of us are able 
to make one and pursue our voyage free from 
peril; many of us make a shipwreck of our 
lives in trying to find a way that suits our own 
fancy. Some of us do not trust the light, be- 
cause we have personal objections to the 
clergyman under whose ministrations we are 
supposed to live. Some of us distrust it be- 
cause we do not like a school of theology, or a 
church organization, or something else equally 
non-essential. And so we hang outside in the 
fog, if we are lucky enough to keep away from 
the breakers, while all the While the light is 
telling us where we ought to go if we would 
be safe from danger and reach our desired 
haven of rest and happiness. 

Some things might be said about the fogs 
that obscure this light, and make the voyage 
of life more difficult than it need be; but per- 
haps it is as well not to enter in'to this aspect 
of the case, further than to say that they are 
all man-made. The disposition of ecclesiastics 
of every age and every country has been to 
enforce their views on matters spiritual, and 
this is no more true of the doctors of the In- 
quisition than it is of the leaders of the latest 
form of religious sects. Recurring to our il- 
lustration, many of us spend much time, many 
books have been written, m.'tu -ermons have 
been preached to prove that one theory or an- 
other in respect to the Divine Light is true, 
and in insisting that everything else is anathe- 
ma. The disputants thrust their ideas upon 
life'- ' ;. ■ . and thjgy. arc m <>rc anxious 

that men shall accept them than that they shall 
shape their course by the light itself. If one 
say-. "] will steer by the light," they say, you 
cannot do so, if you do not believe the light is 
what we say it is. 

But the world seems to be coming upon 
better days. The light which shone on dark- 
ness "and the darkness comprehended it not" 
is becoming every day nine and more human- 
ity's trusted beacon. We arc learning that 
Christian charity is not a creed, hut a quality; 
that faith is not a belief, but a power; that 
"Gpd is a spirit, and Ehey that worship him 
must worship him in spirit and in truth." Back 
east, in St. John, the^ used to stand a light 
shining out to sea\From the south it showed 
white, from the west' it showed red; from the 
east it showed green. Bttt there was only one 
light: the difference was i\ue simply to the 
point of view\ There is a lesson in that for 
those who care to learn it.

Windsor in November, they are then put into 
forcing hot-houses, and planted out in the early 
spring, when the beds become a glorious blaze 
of color. 

Between 300 and 500 pounds are spent every 
year on plants for forcing purposes. The head 
gardener has, of course, to make his plans of 
cultivation for each year very much in advance. 
These plans are submitted to their majesties 
for approval. It frequently may happen that 
the King or Queen Mary desire to lay out 
some of the garden in a particular manner, 
and, of course, any such suggestions are made 
part of the general scheme of cultivation for 
the coming year. 

The head gardener has a staff of forty-six 
assistants under him. Several of them are 
specialists. For example, there is a "bulb" 
specialist, who has devoted years to various 
methods of bulb cultivation; and there is, of 
course, a rose specialist, and there are a dozen 
men who devote all their time to the mana°e- 
ment of hot-houses, and the cultivation & of 
tropica] plants. 

The work in the royal gardens begins at 
8 in the winter, and 6.30 in the summer, and 
there is enough to be done to keep the laro- e 
staff fully employed throughout the year. One 
of the duties of the head gardener is to super- 
vise the cutting of flowers required for the 
royal tables and for bouquets. There is a 
special room in one of the garden houses where 
bouquets are made up and cut flowers packed 
for despatch by post. 

Their majesties are constantly sending pre- 
sents of flowers to their intimate friends, and 
also to hospitals and charitable institutions. 
Two men are kept regularly employed mak- 
ing packing cases for the flowers. These cases 
are made of polished oak, and lined with silver 
paper. The name and address of each person 
to whom a case of flowers is sent is entered up 
in a book, and sometimes five hundred cases of 
flowers are despatched in a day. 

The gardeners at Windsor Castle are pro- 
vided with a thoroughly comfortable, well- 
built set of dwellings, which were built by the 
late King. Before His Majesty came to the 
throne, the gardeners had to find houses for 
themselves about Windsor, and in several in- 
stances had to live a long way from their work. 
In addition to the dwelling houses, there has 
been erected a sort of club house for the har- 

There is a large experimental garden at 
Windsor where new methods of cultivation are 
constantly being tried, and any that prove con- 
spicuously successful are adopted, but the gen- 
eral system in the royal gardens is more or 
less conservative in character. 

No new scheme is ever adopted simply be- 
cause it' happens to be fashionable at the mo- 
ment, but if it were proved by experiments 
to be useful and effective, it probably would be.

HE appeal of the footlights is as 

old as civilization. It is there- 
fore gratifying to Victorians that 
the immediate future "offers some 
" very delightful entertainment in 
this respect, and a part of the credit, at least, 
belongs to the Victoria Ladies' Musical Clue. 
It 'was this local organization of cultured 
and cultivated women who were recently re- 
sponsible for the appearance-of RiccaraVMar- 
tin, the tenor, and Mme. Johanna Gadski, of 
international fame as a singer of Wagnerian 
role-. Whatever the impression made by 
these artistes on various individuals, it is ttlir 
questionably admitted that the. presence of 
the<e operatic stars was a triumph for \K- 
tpria. just as the great attendance at the vari- 
ous performances was a tribute to the city s 
mus'ical taste. .,„ ..-, '.- 

in the very hear liiture two otner celebri- 
ties, perhaps not as well knowjn as '-Gadski and 
Martin, but equally as enjoyable, will make 
their appearance in Victoria rand, swg in .a 
joint recital under the auspices of the musi- 
cal club. They are Mme. Rider Kelsey, so- 
prano, and Mr. Claude Cunningham, baritone, 
wfiose reputations in their profession are of 
stars of the first magnitude. Mme. Kelsey IS 
known as the greatest singer outside of opera, 
and the sweet purity of her tone and her mag- 
nificent art have created sensations in New 
York citv and in Covent Garden. 

Mr Claude Cunningham, with whom Mme. 
Relsey invariably appears in concert recitals, 
is equally renowned, having a voice of great 
range and power, admirably suited in vocali- 
zation to that of Mine. Kelsey. 

Following the departure of this talented 
couple the Ladies' Musical Club will offer 
Misoha' Klnian and Josef Lhevinnc as a cul- 
minating treat of the season. Mischa Elman 
is world-famous as a violinist, as Mr. Lhe- 
vinnc is as a master of the piano. These, like 
those who have already been here and the 
others still to come, will appeal to the music- 
lovers of Victoria, and ovations equal to that 
accorded Gadski are expected to be tendered 

to them. ■ 

"The Secret of Susanne 

In" the meantime the theatre-going popu- 
lation Of the Capital City will have the oppor- 
tunity of regaling itself with a dainty, rollick- 
ing musical comedy to apear at the \ utoria 
theatre for a matinee and an evening perform- 
ance next Saturday. This will he that delight- 
ful little .operetta o\ one act by Wolf-her- 
rari known a< "The Secret of Susanne. 

The fluencv of melody, and the delightful 
lilt of this little musical creation, has awak- 
ened the extravagant praise of the critics in 
all the great cities where it has appeared. 
There is' a JdyoUSneSS in the phrasing, and a 
captivating lure in its madcap plot which IS 
hypnotic. ' Nor is the theme itself barren of 

It appears, from the libretto, that a certain 
ve-y mischievous and contrary young matron 
,,f the name of Susanne. who has an impetu- 
ous husband, has, for some willful reason^ or 
other, contracted a love for cigarettes. Nat- 
urally, being thus enamored of the weed, she 
« mokes. And naturally, being a male, and 
very suspicious, her husband, the Count, im- 
mediately suspects that it is something very 

much worse. (

cuses Her of having a secret, and, being unable* 
to keep a secret, she admits it. But she does 
not admit the nature of her secret. The Count 
is enraged, -lie is now sure thfre is another 
man in the case. He lays a trap— and— and—

plav to learn the result. In any event, he may 
console his anxiety in the meanwhile by 
knowing that it all ends hapily. just like the 
good old-fashioned story book. a,:.i no heart=_ 
rending incident intervenes like that of "'The 
Butterfly on the Wheel." 

The operetta has been in New York city, m 
Chicago, and elsewhere, and in all of these 
places those who saw and heard it have found 
it most enlivening, and no doubt Victorians 
who go to see it will fully agree with them.

loid opera of few characters a hd no chorus, in 

which every line, every word and every note

golden minutes of its development runs the 
whole gamut of human emotions, With love

a most important feature of I he work, a return 
being made herein to the orchestra of Mo/,irt- 
caI1 ,i avs — an orchestra of strings exclusively; 
the harp, violin, viola, piano, Velio, double 
bass. etc. Without the complete orchestra de- 
manded by the composer, or without thorough 
artistes in every role in the cast, "The Secret 
of Suzanne" would not be the tremendous Suc- 
cess it has proven wherever heard. Quality 
cast and orchestra are. however, assured by 

Mr. Dippel, who guarantees the Victoria .per- 
formances to be in cast, orchestra, setting and 
every minutest detail fully equal to the New

Although the company— which numbers 
nineteen vocal and instrumental principal ar-

than one-half its members were brought direct

The Empress Theatre 

Heading a bill of unusual merit at the Em- 
press during the coming week will be Lang- 
don McCormick's spectacular railroad play- 
let, "Number 44.' On its previous visit to the 
Empress "Number 44" not only thrilled, but 
it pleased immensely that large number of pa- 
trons who frequent the popular playhouse. 
The story was taken from an actual incident 
which occurred on a western railroad a few 
years ago, known as the Burdette case, and 
which commanded attention all over the Tint- 
ed States. The electrical contrivances and 
stage mechanicisms combine to make it one 
of the most realistic railroad tabloid dramas 
ever presented to vaudeville. Byron Bidwell 
has been associated with Richard Mansfield, 
Otis Skinner and others. Miss Magill was in 
support of Stuart Robson for several seasons. 
Both Mr. Ryan and Mr. Harrington are 
Shakespearean actors of considerable note. 

The five members of the Mortqn-Jewell 
troupe are said to present one of the most re- 
fined acts of its kind in vaudeville. In pre- 
senting "An Event in Clubdom," the title is 
somewhat euphonious, but those who have had 
the pleasure of looking upon this offering are 
certain of its drawing power or it would not 
have been booked. It costs big money to book 
a troupe of five performers, and unless the act 
merits the consideration of the booking man- 
ager and the public too, it hasn't much chance 
of being booked. The conclusion may be 
drawn that the Morton-Jewell troupe will sat- 
isfy all requirements as to its worthiness. 

Quartettes come and go, but there is said 
to be a certain amount of individuality about 

the Brooklyn Harmony Four that should give 
them lasting recognition in vaudeville. They 
will prove one of the popular acts on the Em- 
press bill during the coming week. They have 
SUng around the world, visiting every impor- 
tant city on the globe. 

While vaudeville is crowded with animal 
acts, only the best of them are booked over the 
S. & C. circuit— those that have proven their 
worth. 'The acrobatic work of these little 
creatures is one of the marvels of animal- 
lovers. This act is making its initial American 
tour over the S. & C. circuit. 

Eli Dawson, the noted song writer and 
blackface comedian, will contribute much joy- 
ousness to the Empress bill during the coming 
week. Mr. Dawson made a tremendous hit in 
N'cw York six months ago with the monologue 
he is now doing, together with his songs, all 
.if which were written by himself. 

Princess Theatre 
"The Wolf," a late New York success, will 
be staged at the above theatre the coming 
week. It is a Canadian play, and the first act 
takes place on the bank of the Wind river, the 
third act at the portage of little Bear river. 
\ndrew McTavish, a .Scotchman, had settled 
in the Canadian wilds. His wife, a young 
Swede girl, much voungcr than himself, falls 
in love with an American engineer, and runs 
away with him. leaving behind her a little girl 
named Hulda. At the time the story opens, 
llulda is just 10 vears old. Her father, natur- 
ally a hard man. has become even more soured 
and embittered by his wife's desertion, and 
dislike the sight of the girl on account of her 
strong resemblance to her mother, who was a- 
pronounced blonde. The girl has had a hard 
life, and falls in love with a young Canadian, 
who has been kind to her. But her father in* 
sists on her going east to Montreal iti 
the care of a friend of his. who, unknown 
to him is also* in love with Hulda.

the road still as 

high priced attraction, and the chance to J 
it at populaij pri^s will, no doubt, be f*gW 
grasped at. It will be played all week, Wit

Accession of Queen Elizabeth— 1558 

(JR. Green. LL.D.) 
From the bodily and mental energy of her 
girlhood.- the close of Edward's reign drew 
Elizabeth at nineteen to face the sterner 
■■" problems of religion and politics. In the dar- 
ing attempt of Northumberland to place Jane 
Grey on the throne Elizabeth's rights were 
equally set aside with those of Mary; and the 
first public act of the girl was to call the gen- 
try -to her standard and to join her sister with 
five hundred followers in her train. But the 
^Jmomentary uhion was soon dissolved. Tfjie 
daughter of Catherine could loojc vyith ffiffife 
hut^ bite on the daughter of An&~JEU*teyr^ 
Elizabeth's tendency to the "new religion- 
jarred with the Oueen's bigotry; and the 
warrJiliigs of the Imperial ambassador were 
hardly needful to spur Mary to watch jcalous- 
lv a 'possible pretender to the throne. The 
"irl bent to the ptteeh's will in hearing mass, 
bu t Her manner showed that the compromise 
1 -is merely a matter of obedience* and fed 
the hopes of the Protestant zealots, who saw 
ffc the Spanish marriage a diance of driving 
Marv from* the throne. The resolve Which 
the Queen showed to conceal her sister's right 
of succession only quickened the project for 
settiiig Elizabeth in her place: and it was to 
make Elizabeth their sovereign that Suffolk 
rose in Leicestershire and Wyatt and his 
' Kentishmen marched against London / bridgev 
The iailure of the rising semed to insure her 
■ loom. The Emoeror pressed for. her death as 
a security for Phillip on his arrival: and the 
detection of a correspondence with the French 
king served as a pretext for her committal to 
the Tower. The fierce Tudor temper broke 
through Elizabeth's self-control as she landed 
;it Traitor's Gate.- "Are all these harnessed 
men there for mc?" she cried, as she saw the 
:uard : "It nfteded not for the, beinjr but a 
weak woman!" and passionately calling on 
the soldiers to "bear witness that T come as no 
traitor!" she flung herself down on a stone 
in the rain and refused to enter her prison. 
'•P.ettcr fitting here than, in a worse place," 
she cried : i; f know not whither you will bring 
me." Rut Elizabeth's danger was less than it 
seemed. Wyatt denied to the last her com- 
plicity in the revolt, and in spite of Gardiner's 
will to cro "roundly to work" with her. the 
1 ord~ of the Council forced Mary to set her 
Ffee. The Queen's terrors, however, revived 
with her hopes 6f a child in the summer of 
155;. T 1 Mary he- sister seemed the one dan- 
ger which threatened the succession of her 
coming babe and the vast issues which hung 
upon it. and Elizabeth was summoned to her 
sister's side and kepi a close prisoner at 
FTampton Courts Phillip joined in this prc- 
rautioft. for "holding her in his nower he could 
depart safely and without peril" in the event 
of the Queen's death in childbirth; and other 
plans were perhaps stirring his breast. Should 
Marv die, a fresh mati h might renew his hold 
"\\ England: "be rriignl hone." writes the 
Venetian ambassador, "with the help of many 
ryf the nobility, won over by his presents and 
favor 5 , to marry her I Klizabcfh ) again, and 
thus succeed again to the crown." 

But whatever may have been Phillip's de- 
signs, the time had not as yet cpme for their 
realization; the final disappointment 6f the 
Oueen's hopes of childbirth set Klizabrth free. 
and in fulv she returned to her house at Ash- 
bridge. From this moment her position was 
utterly changed. With the disappearance of 
all chance of offspring from the Queen and the 
certainty of Mary's coming death her sister's 
danger passed away. Elizabeth alone stood 
between England and the succession of Mary 
Stuart, and whatever might be the wishes of 
the Queen, the policy of the House of^Aus 

tria forced n to support even the daughter <»t 
Anne Boleyn against a claimant who would 
bind England to the French monarchy. Prom 
this moment, therefore, Phillip watched jeal- 
ously over Elizabeth's afetj On his de- 
parture for the Continent he gave written in- 
su notions to the Queen to show favOr to her 
sister, and the charge was repeated to those pf 
his followers whom he left behind him. What 
guarded her even more effectually was the 
l4flj&' , *#tjhfr. people. . w iie»~ Phillip aj a later 
time claimed Elizabeth's gratitude for his pro- 
tection, she told him bluntly that her gratitude 
was really due neither to him nor h*r nobles, 
though she owed her obligations to both, but 
to the English people. It was they who had 
saved her from death and hindered all projects 
for barring her right to the throne. "It is the 
people," she said, "who have placed me where 
I am now." It was indeed their faith ,in 
Elizabeth's speedy succession that enabled 
Englishmen to bear the bloodshed and shame 
of Mary's later years, and to wait patiently 
for the end. 

We may ascribe to Cecil's counsels some- 
what of the wise patience with which Eliza- 
beth waited for the coming crown. Her suc-

to her presence showed a general sense that 
the Queen's end was near. Mary stood lonely 
and desolate in her realm. "1 will not be

Elizabeth said in later years. "Do I not know 
how during her life everyone hastened to me at 

• Hatfield?" The bloodshed indeed went on more 
busily than ever. It had spread now from 
bishops and priests to ihe people itself, and 
the sufferers were sent in batches to the 
flames. What galled Mary yet more was the 
ill-will of the Pope. Paul the Fourth jstill nd- 
hered to his demand for full restoration of the 
Church lands, and held England as Wily partly 
reconciled to fbfc Holy •See. He was hostile 
to Phillip; he was yet more hostile to Pole. 
At this moment he dealt a last blow at the 
Queen by depriving Pole, of- his legatine 
power, and was believed to be on the point of 
calling him to answer a charge of heresy. 
Even when she was freed from part of her 
troubles in the autumn of 1558 by the open- 
ing of conferences for peace at Cambray, a 
fresh danger disclosed itself. The demands of 
the Queen's- envoys for the restoration of 
Calais met with so stubborn a refusal from 
France that it seemed as if England would be 
left alone to bear the brunt of * future strug- 
gle, for Mary's fierce pride, had she livejiL 

3Cjpuld hardly have boWed to the surrender of 

' the town. But the Queen was dying. Her 
health had long been weak, and the miseries 
and failure of her reign hastened the progress 
of disease. Already enfeebled, she was at- 
tacked as winter drew near by a fever which 
was at this time ravaging the country, and on 
the seventeenth of November, 1558, she 
breathed her last, 

Tradition still points out the tree in Hat-,, 
field Park beneath which Elizabeth was sit- 
ting; when she received the news of her peace- 
ful accession to the throne. She fell on her 
knees and, drawing a long breath, exclaimed 
at last, '-It is the Lord*s doing, and it is mar- 
velous in our. eyes." To the .last these words 
remained stamped ott the golden coinage of 
the Queen.

A very powerful story, a little repellent in 
its realism. One hope-, that Mr. Edwards has 
made a mistake in describing his hero as '"the 
average man." It is a study in criminology, 
rather than u novel.

he engaged for five years in philanthropic and

which he went abroad. This was in 1905. He 
visited almost every known country, writing 
articles for Harper's and Collier's, and exist- 
ing as a free lance journalist. Two years of 
this time he spent in Russia, and much of it 
in Africa, to Which country he plans to return

love, in which you must so adjust your heart 

that you long for the weal and welfare 
beings, induing the happiness of y 
mles. '*.;..- ' 

The second meditation is the meditation , 
pity, in which you think of all beings in dis- 
tress, vividly representing in your imagination 
their sorrows and anxieties, so as to arouse a 
deep compassion for them in your soul. 

The third meditation is the meditation of 
joy, in which you think of the prosperity of 
others and rejoice with their rejoicings. 

The fourth meditation is the meditation or. 
impurity, in which you consider the evil con- 
sequences of corruption, the effects of sin and 
diseases. How trivial often the pleasures of

South America, James Bruyce, Macmillan and 
Co., Toronto, Canada. 
"Whoever," Mr. Bryce says in. the intro- 
duction of his "South America." published this 
week, September 25th, "r ^ad' as a boy the* 
books of old travelers in the Andes or pored 
over such accounts of the. primitive American 
people as Prcscott's 'Conquest of Peru.' must 
.have longed to visit some day the counlric; 
that fired bis imagination. These had been 
my experiences, and to them was subsequently 
added a curiosity to understand what were the 
causes which produced so many revolutions 
and civil wars in Spanish America' . . . So, 
when, after many years, the opportunity of 
having four clear months fur a journey in 
South America presented itself, I spent those 
months in seeing as much as I could within 
the time, and was able to make some observa- 
tions and form certain impressions regarding 
^the seven countries I visited." 

It is of these observations and impressions. 
therefore, which his book is composed. To 
those who desire to know something of South 
America, but have not time to peruse the 
many books of travel that have been written 
aboul cub .if its countries, the volume should 
have unique interest. Mr. r.r\ re's diplomatic 
positions and bis reputation as an author are 

enough to give weight to anything which he 

publishes! and any reader, no matter what his 
knowledge of the continent may be. will gain 

a new insight into some of its problems by 
journeying along with the British ambassador. 

The following two extracts will give an 
idea of the beauty of poetic description in this 
book. ,md of its fascinating historical interest: 
Mr. Bryce employs no superfluities of lan- 
guage, lie is one of the simplest and most 
scholarly of present day writers. 

This was our first view of the Andes, a 
view to which few parts of the old world fur- 
nish anything similac, for nowhere else, ex- 
cept in Iceland and in Tibet and Turkestan, 
do snow mountains rise out of waterless 
desci t 9.

and black stones, the sense of solitude and 

The sudden fall of a whole race is an event 
so rare in history that one seeks for an ex- 
planation. It 4nay be that not only the royal 
LncjLfjimily«_hut jiearly.jthe. whole ruling xlass 
was destroyed in war, leaving only the peas- 
ants, who had already been serfs under their 
native sovereigns. But one is disposed to be- 
lieve that the tremendous catastrophe which 
befel them in the destruction at once of their 
dynasty, their empire, and their religion, by 
fierce conquerors, incomparably superior in 
energy and knowledge, completely broke not 
only the, spirit of the nation, but the seii-re- 
spect of the individuals that composed it/They 
were already a docile and submissive people, 
and now, under a new tyranny far harder than 
that of rulers of their own blood, they sank 
into hopeless apathy, and ceased even to re- 
member what their forefathers had been. The 
intensity of their devotion to' their sovereign 
and their deity made them helpless when both 
were overthrown, leaving them nothing to 
turn to, nothing to strive for. The Cinquisto- 
dores were wise in their hateful way, when 
they put forth the resources of cruelty to out- 
rage the feelings of the people and stamp terror 
into their hearts. One cannot stand in the 
great plaza of Cuzco without recalling the 
scene pf A.D. 1571, when one of the last of 
the luca line, an- innocent youth, seized and 
accused of rebellion by the Spanish viceroy, 
Francisco del Toledo, was executed in the 
presence of a vast Indian crowd that filled it. 
When the executioner raised the sword of 
death, there rose such a wail of horror that 
, he paused, and the leading Spanish- church- 
men hastened to the viceroy, and begged him 
for mercy. Determined to make an example, 
•Toledo was inexorable. The young Inca, 
Tupac Amaru, was beheaded-, and Ins head 
stuck on a pike^ and .placed beside the scaf- 
fold. At midnight, a Spaniard, looking out of 
a window that commanded the Plaza, was 
amazed to see it again filled with Indians, att 
silent and motionless, kneeling in veneration ■ 
before the head of the last representative of* 
the sacred line. 

Mr. Bryce, in the last chapter of his book, 
comments on the characteristics of the South 
American people as follows: 

The traveller in South America who con- 
fines himself, as many do, to the larger cities, 
finds them so like those of Europe and North 
America, in their possession of the appliances 
of modern civilization, in their electric street 
cars and handsome parks, in their ably written 
press, in the volume of business they transact 
— that he is apt to fancy a like resemblance in 
the countries as a whole. But the small towns 
and rural districts are very much behind, at 
least in Chile and Argentiuea. If one regards 
these various nations as a whole, one is struck 
by the want of such an atmosphere of ideas, 
if the phrase be permissible, as that men 
breathe in western Europe and in North Am- 
erica. Educated men arc few. books arc few, 
there is little stir of thought, little play of 
cultivated intelligence upon ihe problems of 
modern society. Mosl of these countries seem 
to lie far awav irom the stream of intellectual 
life, hearing only its distant murmur. The 
presence of a great inert mass ol ignorance in 
the native populations partly accounts for 
this; and one must remember the difficulty of 
providing schools, and the thinness of a popu- 
lation scattered through mountainous or desert 
or forest-covered region-. These disadvan- 
^ may, in years to come, be lessened, but 
in the meantime those who arc born with su- 
perior talents are born into an ungenia! cn- 

■ ironment, ill-fitted to develop and polish such 

talents to their own and tO the public benefit. 
. . . Their interest in science is almost en- 
tirely an interest in its applications, ami their 
hero is the great inventor. Science ami learn- 
ing, pursued for their own >ake, nave not yet 
won the place they ought to hold.

Owing to the greater average length of 
human life, Mr. J. l'lakey, actuary to the Na- 
tional Debt Commissioners, recommends, in a 
report issued recently on the Mortality of 
Government Life Annuitants, that the cost of 
annuities should be increased at all ages. 

On the whole, there is little indication of any 
important change in the rate of mortality of 
males, but in the case of females the results 
lead to more definite conclusions, the most sig- 
nificant being the comparatively light mortality 
exhibited by the lives included in the new. ex- 

Females purchasing an annuity at 40 years 
of age may now. it appears, expect to live 29.01 
year-, against _»; .97 years between 1808 and 
1875. wftile at the age of 50 the expectation is 
22.2] years, as compared with 21.07, 

The conclusion arrived at is that government 
life annuities are granted on too favorable 
terms, and a new table is proposed. — London

Mr. H. A. Brooks, Canadian manag 
of Sir John Jackson and Mr. Motley, the firm's en- 
gineer, arrived in Victoria last week to make prepara- 
tions for the work of building the breakwater at Ogden 
Point. Mr. Motley has had great experience In con- 
structing such works in many parts of the Empire. 

Victoria people paid nearly all their taxes in time 
to get the rebate. Out of every dollar levied only 
seven cents Is still due and nearly all of that will be 
paid before the end of the year. These taxes amounted 
to $1,418,173.62. The prompt payment is one of tho 
best signs of the prosperity of our city. 

The steamer Royal George, belonging to the Can- 
adian Northern, went ashore on a rock near Quebec, 
close to the island of Orleans. No one of the many 
hundreds of passengers on board were lost but the 
steamer was very badly damaged. The blunder of a 
pilot is thought to have been the cause of the loss of 
this fine new ship.

Sir Thomas Lipton, the great British yachtsman, 
who Is known ali over the world as a builder of racing

sportsman, who has seen most countries and large

Ottawa is the capital of Canada and the country 
has a great deal of very valuable property there. Not 
only the parliament buildings and Rlduau Hall, the 
residenoe of the governor-general, but the offices ot 
the chief public servants are there. In the parlia- 
mentary library and In many of these offices there 
are papers and records of great value. Premier Borden 
thinks that a small territory should be set apart which. 
with the city, would be the property of all Canada. 
This is what is called a federal district. If this w«ri 
done Ottawa could be made even more beautiful and 
much more healthful than It Is now. 

The Premier of Spain, Don Jose Canalejas, was shot 
on November 12 by an unknown assassin. The mur- 
derer then attempted to shoot himself, but was not 
dead when found. 8vnor Canalejas has proved a wise 
leader and since he took office peace has been estab- 
lished at home and abroad. His last public act was 
to make an agreement concerning the French and 
Spanish possessions In Morocco. The action of his 
government in doing away with religious orders dis- 
pleased many good people. Premier Canalejas was 
a Liberal who, unlike many of his party, believed in 
a monarchy. He was a firm friend of King Alphonso, 
who is married to a'cousin of King George, who bears 
her grandmother's name and Is called Queen Victoria. 

Mr. Castell Hopkins, who is a well known Canadian 
historical writer, spoke before the Canadian club of 
Victoria lately. This gentleman told his audience how 
much Canada owed Great Britain and said that this 
debt should be paid by a closer union with the mother 
country. How this was to be brought about was a 
task, he said, for the statesmen of tire future. There 
is one part of this speech that every boy and girl 
should think about. It is only by being true and high- 
minded, brave and pure, that Canadians can repay 
the mother country for the great thought's that have 
come down to us from her poets and writers and 
patriots. He is no true Briton who speaks falsely or 
deals dishonorably or who oppresses the weak. Only 
the girl who is pure and loving and frank Is worthy 
of her descent from the women who from the time 
of Boadlcea, Queen Victoria, or our own Queen Mary. 
adorned England's homes. If Canada's children grow- 
up good we need not fear that our country shall not 
be a great land In the future. 

Terrible stories are coming from Turkey of wounds 
and starvation and disease. The victorious armies 
have driven the Turks behind the fortifications which 
guard Constantinople and perhaps before you read this 
the splendid old city will have fallen into thoir hands. 
It may be, however, that the Great Powers will Inter- 
fere to prevent such a horrible thing as the destruction 
of this city would be. Adrlanople has not yet passed 
Into the hands of Bulgaria though her' army has taken 
some of its ferts. Salonika has been captured by the 
Greeks and Montenegro is still at the gates of Scutari, 
while Servla is fighting her way to the Mediterranean 
as Austria looks Jealously on. In the meantime a holy 
war has been declared, which seems to mean that cer- 
tain eloquent and brave Mohammedan priests will be 
sent among the soldiers to urge them to do their duty, 
promising heaven to all that fall in tho war. The 
Bulgarian army has reached Tchatalja. within twenty- 
flve miles of Constantinople, the Greeks are on their 
way to Monastlr. and the Montenegrin army has been 
defeated near Scutari. It is rumored that the Turks 
have asked for an armistice. Perhaps never before 
have so many Important victories been won in so short 
s time. One thing seems certain. The Turks will 
never again have the power of oppressing the people 
of other races and religions on the continent of

When they hail crossed the campus, Harvey led the 
way dawn a Utile side street which neither of the boys 
could remember having traversed before. "Where does

•'Th!.; road leads out into the fields west of town, 
to the best of my knowledge, and you are on your way

a comical air of secrecy. 

Ted thrust his bands down into his trousers pockets 
and Jingled the coins he found there. "I trust it's not 
the same sort of a 'Dutch treat' that the watermelon 
party we had last- year turned out to be — you remem-

help them in their homes. Every one has electric

A few have electric stoves or plates. The telephone

By Giulla Hossfeld, In St. Nicholas. 

Ted Cunningham closed his chemistry with a slam, 
and, pushed It across the table. "That's the last of 
chemistry for this week," he said cheerfully to his 
room-mate. "Another try at that last problem In trig, 
and I've finished my work for today." 

"I'm glad you take it so pleasantly," returned Rob- 
ert Burling, dryly, as he looked up from his work with 
a frown. "I still have another half-hour's work u 
my Latin. I should be very glad to have you expi. 
to me the uso in granting the students a half-holiday, 
If every one of the professors gives out so much extra 
work that a fellow has to Bpend his whole afternoon 
and evening over his books." 

Ted threw back his head and laughed. "Poor old 

Bobs! You are down, orn't you! I knew the sole- 
leather you were eating last night would make a pes- 
simist of you today, though you were charitable 
to call It pie." 

Some one was coming up the stairs three steps at 
a time, and a moment hit. r. Harvey Hansom threw 
open the door and stepped In, without the formality 
of waiting for an invitation. 

"6«t out of here," growled Robert, inhospitably, 
"I'm not half through with my lesson*, and I can't 
have you racketing aroun.l." 

The Intruder caught the leather pillow Which had 
been aimed at his head with a polite "Thank you," and, 
throwing It down 00 the floor, seated himself upon it. 
He looked up at Ted inquiringly: "What a the matter 
with the senator? He seems to be on tin? warpath to- 

Ted shook his head. "Oh, he's all right so long as 
you pay no attention to his growling. He thinks that 
the earth isn't running in its accustomed orbit today, 
but It's only that the pie he got down at that little cor- 
ner restaurant last night gave him bad dreams." 

Harvey grinned. "We all have to learn by sad 
experience," he remarked sententlously, then hurriedly 
dodged a second pillow that came perilously near its 
mark. "But fortunately not all of us develop this 
homicidal tendency." 

Robert closed his book and leaned baric in his 
chair. "I had to spend the whole afternoon over that 
assignment In trig, and the everlasting ;;rind is spoil- 
ing my disposition." he explained apologetically. 

"You're quite right there," returned Harvey encour- 
agingly ; -then added in a more serious tone, "You two 
fellows spend too much of your time here in this stuffy 
room. If you'd get out with the rest of us once In a 
while, you'd be a great deal better off. I've come 
over here this evening with n special Invitation for 
you to Join us In a lark we've planned for tonight, but 
1 haven't a doubt but that it will be declined with 

"I hope ynu haven't been counting too much on a 
refusal," said Ted, "for I'm ready for any fun that 
may come my way tonight — not because ' I'm taking 
your advice to neglect my work, but simply because 
I am practically through with It, and feel ready for a 
frolic. You play all the time, Harvc.s. so you are never 
In a position to appreciate your good times," added 
Ted, teasingly. 

Harvey was not in the least disconcerted by this 
allusion to his well-known aversion to study. "You'll 
soon bo called upon to fill the chaplain's place If you 
persist in giving us these choice sermonettes — your 
eloquence deserves a larger audience. How about you, 

"Oh, well, I guess I can finish my Latin In the 
morning before class, so I'm with you, too. What's 
the programme?" 

Harvey had already risen, and was pulling on his 
cap. "This la creator luck than 1 had expected; But 


The two other boys stopped short "But he hasn't 
invited us!" exclaimed Ted. 

Harvey laughed. "That needn't worry yen. for he 
hasn't Invited any of MS. It's something in the ne* 

iur v p t a w r pr i ie par ty , lo f tct, 1 

"That's not much better," returned *•£ T don't 
even know Professor Donnerberg by sight, and I 
doubt whether Bobs here does. He'll wonder to what 
he owos the honor of our call." 

Harvey appeared to be more amused than ever. 
"There, the fellows are waiting for us, but before we 
Join them, perhaps I'd better relieve your minds of the 
fear of meeting the professor. You see, there's some 
sort of a reception to the faculty over at Dean Wright's 
tonight, so the professor will unfortunately be unable 
to be present at our little gathering." 

"Whirl's the Joke?" asked Robert Impatiently. "I 
thought you said we were going out for a Dutch treat," . 

"And so we are," returned Harvey, cooly.- 

"Then Just where does Professor Donnerberg come 
in?" Insisted the other. 

"He conies in on the 'Dutch,' " explained Harvey, 
soberly. "He looks Dutch, acts Dutch, and was chris- 
tened 'Old Dutch,' the first day he set foot on the 
campus. His special hobby Is a vineyard which is 
just now in its glory, as you shall presently see, for 
we are now on our way to pay it a visit. Need I fur- 
ther demonstrate the fitness of the term 'Dutch treat'? 
Hello, there, fellows! Are we the last ones?" 

"Every one else has been here fifteen minutes," 
replied Winston Carter. "Hello. Burling! Hello. Cun- 
ningham! If you'll take the lead now, Ransom, we'll 
get under way at once." 

Ted and Robert had paused uncertainly on the edge 
•of --the little group, but as Ransom was about to set 
off, Ted called him aside. "I'd a little rather you'd 
count us out of this, Harvey," he began rather angrily. 
"If you had told us In the beginning that you were 
going to rob some one, you might have spared yourself 
and us this trouble." 

Harvey remained unruffled, and, laying a hand on 
the shoulder of either boy, he drew them on with him. 
"Don't be foolish, boys!" he protested under his breath. 
"The follows would never forget it if you were to go 
back on us now, and It's all right at any rate. It's a 
regular class 'stunt' down here to do something like 
this, and no one ever thinks of calling It stealing." 

The two chums fell Into step without making any 
reply, for Harvey's words had silenced but not con- 
vinced them. But the dozen boys who made up the

ious, dark but clear, and as they made their way quiet- 
ly, yet with many a whispered joke and much gay 
banter, through the fields and around to the back of 
Professor Donnerberg's vineyard, both Ted and Robert 
forgot their scruples and were quite carried away by 
the feeling of adventure, touched with just enough of 
danger to make them tingle pleasantly with excite- 

The boys came to a halt Just under the high stone 
wall that separated the vineyard from the fields. 
'Herei" said Ransom, in a whisper, "some one lend 
in.- ;. shoulder, and l'il go over first to see whether 
the coast is clear." 

They heard him drop softly onto the turf on the 
other side of the wall, and then, after a few moments 
of anxious waiting, his muffled call of "All right." 
Carter and Dick Walton lent willing shoulders, and 
on.- after another of the boys scaled the wall and 
Joined Ransom with scarcely a sound. Carter came 
tost, having been drawn up by two of his fellows. 

"Kvery one here?" whispered Ransom. "All right 
then. Wo'll go right up to Die centre path, where we're 
not so apt to be heard or seen from the street and 
house, and then we'll scatter out a little." 

Just as the hoys turned to follow Ransom's lead, 
there cume a blinding flash of light. The little group 
stood as though petrified for a moment, then turned 
to run, but a hearty voice, with a strong German ac- 
cent, arrested their flight, "I'm very sorry that my 
flash-light startled you so, gentlemen, but I didn't 
want to lose the opportunity to get a good photograph 
while I had you all together. I should have been very 
sorry to have broken up the party, though, for I re- 
fused one invitation for tonight in order not to forego 
the pleasure, of meeting you here." 

The boys were still too amazed for words. The 
flash-light had died down, but a small search-light 
was still turned full upon them, and Into this circle 
of light stepped Professor Donnerberg. He extended 
his hand cordially to Ransom, who was In the lead. 
"I'm very glad tn welcome you here, Ransom," ho 
said cordially. "And you, Sargent; how do you do, 
Parr? I am very agreeably surprised to find you here 
tonight. When I heard you were too ill to attend my 
class this morning, I feared that you might bo seri- 
ously Indisposed." 

Parr blushed crimson, but the professor appeared 
not to notice his confusion, and went on down the line, 
greeting each one of hi* guests by name. When he 
came to Ted and Robert, who brought up the rsar, he. 
paused a moment. "I believe I have not. had the pleas- 
ure?" he said Inquiringly. 

"My name Is Robert Burling, sir," replied Robert, a 
little unsteadily. 

"1 am happy to know you. And this gentleman'''' 
He turned to Ted. 

"Theodore Cunningham, sir." 

"Is your father a Princeton m*n?" inquired the pro- 
fessor, eagerlv. 

"Class of '83, sir," replied Ted, In surprise. 

The professor held out his hand again. "Then I 
am doubly glad to meet you, Your father and I are 
old classmates, and I am delighted to know his son." 
He turned again to the whole group. "But I know 
that you are becoming impatient of all these prelimin- 
aries and are eager for the real business of the evening 
to begin. Are you all armed with pocket-knives? Yes? 
So much the better. Now if you will just follow me, 
I'll show you wh«we the best table grapes grow." 

He led the way Into the vineyard, talking as he 
went. "There was a party of boys out here from town 
last night, but they neglected to tell me of their com- 

ing, and, left to themselves In the dark — they had 
| if lib; ' liiijel' Wb( il to bring lanterns — they got hold of tho 
tmpta that grew here this year." He took 
tbo '»eli*4^4lJii^t-fl'W9 the grinning negro who held it, 
and tflW theV Itgni on the vines. "You'll find the 
beat hlaofc *r«ne» on tfeoee apaali vines there m th« 
northeast corner. Personally I prefer the red ones— 
those llttto fellow* there at your right— they are so 
much sweeter. And if any of you are partial to the 
white grapes, you'll find a late variety on those large 
vines that- are trained over the »rbor. but I can't rec- 
ommend them very highly— I can't raise good white 
grapes hUra in this climate. tboCgh I've tried it again 
and again — Tf ynu'll luat rather «Ms«L£ unchea wMle 
you're about it, you oan br*B# them to the big table

Th» prpfossor continued his pleasant talk while 
they ate, b«t ■*»*. »oys found it very difficult to keep 
UP t hd lt ohd 'bt t h e jjim —rn-ll — H was not, however. 

because they were too busily engaged with their grapes 
— eating and talking seemed equally difficult, and In 
spite of their host's urgent invitation, they did not 
return to the vines for a second supply of fruit. 

When, at last, they rose to leave, Professor Donner- 
berg shook hands with each of them again, assuring 
them that he had greatly enjoyed the evening, and 
then led the way towards the street. "Let me show 
you the gate," he said cheerfully. "It Is really a much 
more convenient entrance than the one you o.hosx 
tonight, and I hope that you'll make use of It often 
in the future." 

The boys walked down the street In absolute 
silence, but as they neared the campus. Ransom said 
with a groan: '*Tve already got some black marks 
from last year, so I suppose this means expulsion for 

"You'll have plenty of company at least." returned 
Carter, grimly. "And by the way. Ransom, it was .i 
fine old 'Dutch treat' — wasn't it?" 

"I thought those grapes would choke me!" put In 
Parr. "I never want to see another grape-vine th i 
longest day I live." 

"It seems to me. Just now, that I could bear chok- 
ing or expulsion better than the professor's oolUo- 
ness," said Ted, whose face looked drawn and hagaard. 

"He was awfully clever to get that picture of mi 
before we knew he was there. There wasn't anv uso 
In even trying to run after that," groaned Sargent, df 

The expected notices, summoning them to appear 
at the president's office, were not received the next 
day nor the next. Then a week went by, and the boys, 
in anxious uncertainty, decided that "Old Dutch" wa» 
waiting to bring the matter up at the next meeting o* 
the faculty. But the faculty meeting was held, and 
again a week went by without any mention beln* 
made of the "Dutch treat." The boys began to breath* 
a little more freely. Ted Cunningham had twice busn 
Invited to take supper at Professor Donnerberg's homo, 
but on neither occasion had any mention been made of 
their first meeting. 

Then one evening in early November, Robert an4 
Ted invited their companions of that September ex- 
cursion to assemble lu Iheir room, and Ted took th« 

tioor. -- aBsBBHI 

"I don't know how the rest of you fellows feel 
about the 'Dutch treat' Professor Donnerberg gave us 
six weeks ago." he began, "but I think the professor 
a perfect brick." (There was a hearty chorus of as- 
sent.) "I've felt all along that we fellows owed him 
some sort of an apology, and It ha3 occurred to me 
that we might send him a basket of those big white 
grapes on Thanksgiving morning, with our cards. 
You remember he told us, that fateful night, that h» 
couldn't raise good white ones. But perhaps one of 
you will have some better suggestion to makfi." 

That first suggestion, however, was adopted unan- 
imously, and the order despatched at once. The morn- 
ing after Thanksgiving, each one of the donors re- 
ceived a personal note of thanks from "Old Dutch," 
and In each was enclosed a photograph of a startled 
sroup of boys — "as a souvenir of the rery pleasant 
evening we spent together last September," the pro- 
fessor wrote, "and an Invitation to repeat the Visit 
each September during your college course."

And all the little maidens said, 

"A jewel, if you please!" 

But while they held their hands outstretched 

To catch the diamonds gay, 
A million little sunbeams cams 
And stole them all away.

In Switzerland there is so much ice and snow for 
so long a time that the little errand boys who In this 
country would deliver their parcels either on foot 
or bicycle, take to their skis, and carry their parcel* 
in great baskets on their backB. They acquire such 
skill in managlne their skis that it Is perfectly easy 
for them to go on their daily rounds in this fashion. 
One of the interesting sights that one sees In this 
most Interesting country is the Swiss baker boy on 
his skis, and with n huge basket of bread strapped to 
his back. He wears a short coat and a warm woolen 
waistcoat, short trousers, warm woolen stockings, 
often white, and a cap, and very often In spite of the 
hlting weather he wears no gloves at all, at toast if 
he Is going only a short distance.

The title of this article is reminiscent of 
the advertising columns. If, however, an ad- 
vertisement asking for expert advice upon this 
subject were seriously inserted into the pages 
of some so-called "society paper 
what answers it would have? 

If a definite set of rules were laid down 
and scrupulously obeyed, I doubt very much 
if the result would be satisfactory either to 
those who practiced them according to care- 
fully learned rules, or -to those upon -whom 
the novice practiced his newly-acquired aft

1 M manners must surely be ^natural," and if 
• not nature itself, at least second nature to those 
' in whom the practice of manners is an ac- 
knowledged success. 

That manners (or good manners, as is gen- 
erally understood by the word) do not depend 
entirely upon teaching can be easily enough 

For one has only to note the difference in 
q n ay»y >%f what must he described as "man-

The child who, when asked. "No what?" 
when she had said "No" in answer to an en- 
quiry 'whether she wished for some more cake, 
and replied "No cake," probably knew quite 
well what was expected of her, and merely re- 
belled against a fetish that possjbly irritated 
her for the moment as personified by her re- 

But though instinctive or automatic ex- 
pressions that are the result of training are 
sometimes superfluous, I do not, on that ac- 
count, for one moment advise their abandon- 

A sense of proportion in these matters is 
all that- is^ needed. — ->- ' ■ 

than mere outward teaching can go. 

I distinguish, too, between "manners" and 
"manner." It is possible to have a good man- 
ner and bad manners, and to exercise excel- 
lent manners in an uncouth manner. 

Many are the definitions that have been 
produced on what constitutes a gentleman.^ I 
remember in a somewhat eager discussion 
which was taking place on this subject some- 
me saying to me: "Your definition of a gen- 
tleman seems someone who is never rude, 
either unintentionally or by accident, but ap- 
parently is frequently so by design." 

Now, while not admitting the accuracy of 
this statement as my idea of that ubiquitous 
creature "a gentleman," I must confess that 
there is "something in it.' 

In my own mind, however, I have worked 
out a more complete approximation to the pos- 
sibility of his verbal description, which leaves 
me with the conviction that if by "gentleman" 
one means an ideal male production, he is not 
only an extremely rare product of civilization, 
but not easy to test, as there are such excep- 
tionally good imitations, of the genuine article 
"buzzing round," as our American friends say, 
that the opportunity of putting their. genuine- ; 
ness to the test very rarely occurs; so they 
lave, for the most part, to be taken on trust, 

There are in my estimation three kinds of 
maie persons wlio, in their peregrination 
through life, will be accepted as "gentlemen" 
by anyone who take? the trouble to classify the 
people with whom they are brought into con- 

The first has in outward appearance and in 
his superficial attributes associated with well- 
bred persons in the minds of those who mix 
with him. 

Prick him— that is to say, come into rela- 
tions with him that go beyond the surface of 
everyday life, and the flaw, when it exists is 
laid bare— he is not a test-proof gentleman. 

The second is one that has not all the out- 
ward superficialities either in appearance or 
manner usually associated with the qualities 
above mentioned. Prick him, however, and 
you find your true gentleman. 

The third and only "perfect gentleman" is 
the one who possesses the outward attributes 
of the first and, like the second, is prick-proof. 
It amounts to this: there is no hall-mark for' 
a gentleman, his intrinsic qualities "lie too 
deep for word- " 

I do not, however, confine the manners of 
everyday to the male sex alone. The views I 
have expressed about "gentlemen" hold good 
fo- the "lady." 

I emphatically refuse to subscribe to the 
word "gentlewoman," which is so dear to the 
hearts and pens of certain journalists and peri- 

The gentlewoman*' or the person who likes 
to be thus described is always associated in 
my mind with "decay." She is a person who 
is in needy circumstances, but insists upon its 
beiner remembered that she is "of gentle birth 
and breeding," and desires to be accorded priv- 
ileges that she cannot claim cither in virtue of 
her actual position or her intrinsic merits. 

If she be indeed a lady she will bear the 
necessary "pricking." a lady she will remain 
whatever her circumstances may lie, and the 
last thing she will ever find it necessary to do 
will he to remind others that she is one! 

If she remembers the fact herself no one else 
will ever forget it. 

But in the present economic relations be- 
tween the two sexes it is to the great discredit 
of her male relations if the "lady" is reduced 
to describing herself as a "gentlewoman," 

There is nothing either- snobbish or narrow- 
minded in insisting upon this distinction as 

the affairs of the world are at present con- 

If one writes at all upon such subjects, the 
definition of current words, used in the differ- 
entiation of "class." is, after all, if sincerely 
and delicately treated, as interesting as dis- 
cussions upon any other subject that comes 
under the heading of "social." 

The everyday manners, then, that are want- 
ed »o badly at the present time, arc the man- 
ners prompted by good-feeling «nd good taste. 

The "polite" stranger who missed his train 
because, having hustled a passing /.wayfarer. 
who happened to be deaf . ,and who detained 
him to enquire, "What did you say?" to his 
hurriedly ejaculated "I beg your pardon,'^ and 
who upon repeating it was asked ."Why?" and 
on Stating 'T kicked you." was asked "What 
for ?" probably regretted his instinctive polite- 
ness on that occasion ; but would not, I ima- 
gine, on that account cease to use the time- 
honored formula. 

So we may, I think, lay it down as an axiom 
that the exercise of politeness or good man- 
ners ts instinctive, and does not depend upon 
the immediate regard (or punishment, as in 
the case of the fable I have just recounted) 
which is likely to be meted out to the person 
Who indulges irt politeness. 

'The manners, therefore, that are wanted 
iiV everyday life are the manners that come 
from a feeling of -good-fellowship. 

I read, with /great indignation, of the re- 
puted discourtesy of women, in street cars or 
trains, Who flop, without a word of thanks, into 
the seat vacated for their benefit by some good- 
natured and courteous traveler, and I have 
every sympathy with the injured person who, 
having suffered many of these slights, asked 
one stern-visaged traveler of the. opposite sex 
1 if. she believed in "women's rights, and ad- 
vised her in consequence of a none too cour- 
teous reply to his question in the affirmative, 
"to stand up for them!" while he resumed his 

I unhesitatingly maintain that discourtesy 
to strangers is just as offensive in women as 
in men. Indeed, if there is any privilege of 
which either sex has the right to claim a 
monopoly, I should say that it was the priv- 
ilege of setting an example to the rising gen- 

This privilege I defy anyone even in these ■ 
sljiys when the home and home influence is al- 
readv becoming "old-fashioned," "out-of- 
date" and "bourgeois," to deny to the only be- 
ings on earth to whom it is given as an actual, 
and precious birthright, and from whom no one 
can wrest it. 

A litle boy of four years old, of my ac- 
quaintance, attended a small kindergarten 
class for the first time, and was told to take 
his seat, with the other children, and not to 
leave it until permission to do so was given to 

A little later he saw his mistress moving a 
chair, and immediately jumped off his seat and 
ran to her assistance. 

Instead of reproving him for this breach 
of discipline, she said: "Who taught you 
such beautiful manners?" To which he 
replied. "My mummy." 

The privilege I have claimed is. of course, 
for the women who are mothers — in the true 
sense of the word." 



The Fashionable Outlook 

Mv Besl Friend: 

Is it not a striking illustration of the in- 
consistency of our sex that the more we de- 
mand freedom in the affair- of life, the more 
we accept thraldom in the affairs of dress? 

Never .it any time did woman deny Si 
disability so passional iy as today, and never 
did dress 50 subtly emphasize her feminism. 

While she claims equalit} in the spoken word 
of irrefutable logic she asserts despotic sover- 
eignty in every illogical line and curve of her 
bewilderingly beautiful clothes. There is more 
defiance in the complexity of the modern skirl 

than in a score of broken windows. And who 

but a woman absolutely assured ^i her powei 

to triumph over all Opposition — even over rid- 
icule, the most subtle form of opposition- 
would compromise her sanity in the fashion- 
able hat of the moment: Wonderful is the 
modern woman — always modern and wonder- 
ful to her generation — begging the bread oi 
life while she dispenses its wine. 

And now to discuss clothes in their con- 
crete rather than their abstract relation to 
everyday matters. I have spoken of the fash- 
ionable skirt as complex, and that is really a

In nothing does a woman reveal her char- 
ac ter more clearly than inkier early-morning

after M a.m. there are certain well detined 
rules which govern the order of our clothes. 
but before that hour we are free to consult 
our own feelings in the matter o what we 
shall wear, and thereby we are led to reveal 
which we may at other times suc-

also an artist— and it requires an artist to con- 
ceive and carry to success these elaborate 
dress schemes—will so skilfully blend all the 
ingredients that no incongruity is observabic 
in the result. I saw a very charming gown of 
this description recently. Over the black 
broadcloth lower skirt came a princess tunic of 
white wool canvas. This was made like a 
long tight-fitting jacket buttoning with large 
black and white cup buttons to the knees. It 
was sloped off here, so that although a good 
deal of the black underskirt showed in front, 
at the back it was almost covered by the white 
overdress. Over this again was worn a coat 
of black veknifs, and the f r unts uf this were

very mild term to apply to it. Except in tSg 
simplest costumes, it is usual to use two or 
three distinct materials in its construction. 
French couturieres are combining velvet and 
fine face cloth in many of their newest models 
for street wear, and achieve results from such 
a combination that are infinitely smarter than 
an entire costume of either velvet or cloth 
would be. A skirt of this type will perhaps 
have the upper part of velvet and the lower 
part, where it joins the velvet, will be cut in 
scallops or long points and stitched in ap- 
plique fashion over the velvet. Or it may be 
that the lower part, of the skirt is of velvet, as 
it was in a dress which came under my notice 
recently, made by a famous French tailor for 
an English bride. The fabrics were, face cloth 

and the - vt } 0U I> 1)nth in tllat very 1>ale 

pinkish grey which old-fashioned people call 
dove color.' The velvet underskirt was plain 
and narrow, and had a border of sknnk. The 
top part of the costume was made in the fash- 
ion of a redingote, the long fronts folded back 
to reveal the velvel skin and the folds held in 
place by large black pearl buttons. 

The waistcoat wa- 'vd, with a little 

"sampler" embroidery in dull pink, brown and 
gold silks, and there was a deep collar of tin- 
velvet edged with skunk, while the three-quar- 
ter Sleeves Of cloth were slit: open a few inches 
and showed under sleeves of velvet, very long 
and tight -lining, with Cuffs ol skunk. To ac- 
comnanv this dre-s there was a long cloak of 
velvet brocade in the same delicate shade, 
lined with shell-pink chiffon over satin, with 
a deep roll collar of skunkj ami a jelly-bag 
muff of brocade similarly lined and bordered 
with skunk. A large hat of black plush, the 
brim Imvd with shell-pink chiffon and edged 
with skunk, which had £01 il I rimming a full 
brush oi black osprej laid flat on the brim, 
completed an ideal toilette for an autumn 
wedding journey. There was another dress 
in the trousseau of this fortunate bride which 
urged in ver\ persuasive nianiKi the charms 
of the drapi I I it : , ind the, material in this 
case was ivor\ ninon de soie. and the three- 
quarter t nine was corded m horizontal lines 
and the skirl draperies were looped Up OVet 

this and carried up high on the bodice back 

and front. A scarf oi deep (ream Spanish lace 
was draped on one side of the bodice, and 
there were under -sleeves "i similar lace. A 
sash of cherry colored velvet, and a touch oi 
the same velvet on the sleeves gave a pleasing 
touch of coloi to ibis original gown.

are so much in evidence just now, not only 

different materials, but different colors arc 

frequently employ cd. The lower skirt may be 

*of black cloth, above it a shorter skirt of white 

also sloped, taking the same line as the second 
skirt. The big collar and gauntlet cuffs of the 
coat were of white canvas cloth with a little

in another dress of velvet and cloth the velvet 
was sandwiched, in between two layers of 
cloth. The underdress in this case was of blue

nier-like draperies. A straight stole of the 
cloth came over this, drawn in to the waist 
with a wide sash of blue and black brocaded 

There is a tendency to reinstate braiding 
as a fashionable trimming, and this will cer- 
tainly find support among that very large class 
of women who like to feel that their clothes 
represent beautiful handiwork rather than ex- 
treme conceptions of fashion. A dress that, is 
finely braided can never be ineffective, even 
though it is plain and unobtrusive in other re- 
spects. And it is a matter that should be made 
a note of that braiding is always more effect- 
ive on a dark than on a. light color, and should 
be done either in black or self-colored braid. 
White is the only possible exception. Color 
contrasts in braiding are almost invariably an 
error of judgment. There is a very charming 
example of the latest development of the 
braided dress on this page. The material is 
a smooth cloth in bottle-green— a favorite 
shade at the moment. The skirt has two deep 
tucks, which are intended to give the effect of 
a triple skirt, and at either side there are pan- 
els of fine black silk braiding, which taper 
down sharp points. The crossover bodice is 
braided on one side, - while the other is a 
double rever of fine needle-run net, the chemi- 
setie and collar being of the same. The three- . 
quarter sleeves are braided about half way up, 
and are finished with a narrow fold of the net. 
A girdle of green and silver encircles the waist, 
with long tasselled ends. A small close-fit- 
ting hat of green velvet, surrounded by ostrich 
feathers of the same shade, completes a cos- 
tume which is in excellent taste, and will com- 
mend itself to Englishwomen more than many 
of the extreme, though undoubtedly beautiful, 
designs which Paris sends us. 

It is interesting to note how old fashions 
—both in fabrics and designs— return to us, 
and are made to conform with our latter-day- 
notions of what is beautiful in dress. There 
is, for example, satin damask, a revival of the 
most assertive Victorianism, but in this gener- 
ation, as soft and drapablc as the mo 
aesthetic designer could desire, and it seems 
to prove that taste was not so much mis- 
guided in those days — unless we are to admit 
that we have not improved upon it — as that it 
was hampered by the more imperfect methods 
of production than those of our own day. We 
cannot improve upon the designs of those 
splendid damasks and brocades in which our 
grandmothers gloried — the satins which would 
stand alone — but we have immensely im- 
proved our textile machinery, and so it is.per- 
haps, to the engineer rather than the artist 
thai we should give thanks for the grace and 
beaut) <>f our gowns today. We have quite 
returned to our worship of strong colors, and 
even such a daring scheme as wine-red 
flowers embossed on green satin does not re- 
j.el us. The green in the case in question was 
the dull hue of shallow sea water, and made 
an excellent background for the bright floral 
pattern. The damask formed the bodice and 
pannier drapery over a skirt of green char- 
mcii'-e. and there was a little inner bodice of 
lace and net and folded waistband of wine-col- 
ored velour. The bodice, with its open V back 
and front, and the elbow-sleeves finished with 
frills of lace, made the frock just sufficiently 
decollete to effect that compromise between 
the da) and the evening toilette which the 
fashionable woman calls her tea frock. The 
tea gown of peignoir tendency is out of favor. 
Rather, it would be correct to say that the 
reason for the existence of the floppy tea gown 
is gone, for since all dresses are now loose 
and soft and comfortable, and modern corsets 
conform to. instead of contorting the figure, 
the neeessit) of escaping from whalebone 
gaolers for a couple of hours a day is removed. 
The rest-gown is in a different category. It 
is for the privacy that only intimate friendship 
intrudes upon. My own experience is that 
they are provocative of depression, and I am 
quite sure that the cup that cheers is more

Fashions in hairdressing change japidly. 
Following one on the other we have the vogue 
which demands the dignified, seve^; or <k»Jt 
style; the coquettish mode, whijbh calls lor 
little curls running over the head, and ci$g* 
cious extravagance in puffs and waves and 
Madonna-like simplicity "I HWfr-

fure which is the reaction inevitably follow- 
ing elaboration; and the i^U^ «*,?««£

yet is sometimes daring and bizarre. ,-.!gj 
The advantage of the present-day mode is 
that a great deal of latitude is given in the 
Choice of the method of arranging the hair, 
and it is possible to study individuality to a 
degree which would not have been permitted 
a few decades ago. 

The mistake made by some women, how- 
ever, is slavishly to follow the dominant fash- 
ion, 'irrespective of its suitability to their in- 
dividual type. Those who err in this respect 
frequently also err in the direction of dress, 
and one sometimes sees a matronly person, 
with double chin, full bust, and figure of a ro- 
tound type, affecting flowing Greek draperies 
and a Sappho coiffure, while a woman of slen- 
der, graceful build, head and face of almost 
faultless shape, and a dignified poise spoils 
these possessions 'by adopting the fluffy style 
in coiffure and costume. 

;; A sense of the eternal fitness of things for- 
tunately prevents many women from sacrific- 
ing °-ood' taste to every passing fashion craze, 
and°one.may broadly affirm that Englishwo- 
men as a class have rightfully earned for them- 
selves the expression of opinion, of a French 
critic that they are the best coiffured ladies in 
the w r orld. 

In studying a most becoming headdress for 
her individual, type, a woman should take not 
only her features into account, but the shape 
of her head, the width of her shoulders, her 
height, and above all other things— her per- 
sonality. It would be a mistake, for instance, 
for the petite woman with small piquant 
features, arch expression and quick, birdlike 
movements, to dress her hair in a style re- 
sembling that of a Greek goddess. It would 
. equally be out of place for the stately Juno- 
esque beauty to adopt the Lady Hamilton type 
of coiffure. If the face is broad and the 
cheekbones high, the hair sheuld not be part- 
ed in the middle and puffed out at the sides. 
That would accentuate these characteristics. 
They should be minimized by the adoption of 
a mode of dressing the hair which gives height, 
and has the effect of apparently elongating the 
face. When the forehead is unusually high, the 
hair should be parted either in the middle or at 
the side, and drawn forward so that part of the 
forehead is hidden, or at least veiled. When 
the face is long, a somewhat square effect in 
the arrangement of the coiffure in front is de- 
sirable ; this has a shortening effect. Filets 
or bands placed horizontally across the fore- 
head also and in this direction. A receding 
forehead should have the hair brought down in 
soft waves, slightly puffed out at each side, 
and a few fluffy curls should be allowed to 
stray over the top of the forehead in order to 
conceal the defect. 

Whenever the forehead narrows above the 
cheekbones the hair should be puffed out a lit- 
tle on either side of the brow. When the head 
is flat mi the top, the coronet style of coiffure 
or the "Marie Antoinette" pompadour is suit- 

The girl who has the good fortune to pos- 
sess a well-shaped head need not in these days 
attempt to hide its contour. A fashion which is 
very becoming for quite young girls, and which 
has" been largely adopted during the past sea- 
son, is that of parting the hair neatly from the 
forehead over the head in a straight line down 
to the nape of the neck. The hair is then made 
into two plaits and arranged in a coil or rosette 
on each side of the head just behind the ears. 
This style is, of course, only permissible for a 
well-shaped head. 

There are so many artistic "aids" to hair- 
dressing in these up-to-date days, that no wo- 
man need appear in society with thin tresses 
or a" badly-arranged coiffure.

N the volume entitled "Arthur 
James Balfour as Philosopher 
and Thinker," the only utterance, 
save -for the compiler's brief 
preface, is that of Mr. Balfour, 
says The London Daily Telegraph. The 
flowers of his written and spoken thought 
have been gathered together within the com- 
pass of One book, a process which, in compli- 
ance with the popular taste for the part in 
preference to the whole, is today unhesitat- 
ingly applied to almost all eminent authors, 
living or dead But there is a wide difference 
between Mr. Wilfrid M. Short's work and 
those dainty "little books" of the Belles 
Lettres variety, in which the wisdom <mM$ 
sage is "boiled down" to a few carefully 

won them by honest toil. But all this is quite 
wrong. In matters literary works have no 
saving efficacy. 

'He has only half-learnt the art of reading 
who has not added to it the even more re- 
fined accomplishments of skipping and skim- 
ming; and the first step has hardly been 
taken in the direction of making literature a 
pleasure until interest in the subjects, and 
not a desire to spare (so to speak) the au- 
thor's feelings, or to accomplish an appointed 
task, is the prevailing motive of the reader."

Mr. Balfour, then, would be the first to 
dissuade those who find no real enjoyment 
therein from reading his works, while Mr.

Balfour's part has been to show that science 

has logically no superior ground of authority 
than that Which is occupied by religion; 
that he is conc*rned~not 

"spaced' 'ahd'''TsoraTed''"'sehtehc'es", and '"whose"" 

effect is to give the reader an illusion of fam- 
iliarity with great literature without putting 
him to any pains of continuous or connected 
thinking. Mr. Balfour as an author would 
be, perhaps, the most peculiarly unsuitable 
.subject for such treatment. He is epigram- 
matic, but rarely aims at producing the clear- 
cut epigram. He argues about truth, but 
seldom crystallizes it in a phrase. His mode 
of self-expression is dialectic, tending to ami- 
lc but long drawn and fine-spun debate 
with readers or listeners, real Or postulated. 
Nor would his major philosophical works, 
• \ Defence of Philosophic Doubt" and "The 
Foundations of Belief," lend themselves read- 
ily to that method of abstract and precis 
which is designed to afford "a five minutes' 
daily reading." 

It is not surprising, therefore, that Mr. 
Short's collection of selections from Mr. Bal- 
four's non-political writings, speeches, and 
addresses, covering the. period from 1879 to 
the present: year, amounts to a substantial 
volume of 550 pages. Within that not ungen- 
erous limit Mr. Short has been faced with no 
impossible task pi compression, consistent 
with fair representation of the author, and it 
may truthfully be said that he has given us an 
essence of the non-political but otherwise 
complete Mr. Balfour. That being the case, 
his work of selection is such as Mr. Balfour 
himself would be likely to approve. 
The Art of Reading 

In an address, which Mr. Short floes well 
to reprint, Mr. Balfour has declared his lack 
of faith in that strenuous form of self-culture 
which consists in coscientiously reading from 
the first word to the last books accounted to 
be improving rather than entertaining. The 
self-immolated and secretly bored victim of 
such works may find a way of honorable re- 
lease in acceptance of this clear counsel: 

"The best method of guarding against the 
danger of reading what is useless is to read 
only what is interesting. A truth which will 
>cctn a paradox to a whole class of readers, 
fitting objects of our commiseration, who may 
be often recognized by their habit of asking- 
some adviser for a list of books, and then 
marking out a scheme of study in the course 
of which all are to he conscientiously perused. 
These unfortunate persona apparently read a 
book, principally with the object of getting to 
the end of it. They reach the word finis with 
the same sensation of triumph as an Indian 
feels who strings a fresh scalp to his girdle. 
They are not happy unless they mark by 
some definite performance each step in the 
weary path of self-improvement. To begin a 
volume and not to finish it would be to de- 
prive themselves of this satisfaction ; it would 
be to lose all the reward of their earlier self- 
denial by a lapse from virtue at the end. To 
skip, according to their literary code, is a 
species of cheating; it is a mode ot obtaining 
credit for erudition on false pretences; a plan 
by which the advantages of learning are sur- 
reptitiously obtained by those who have not 

of ultimate truths,. but with the attitude of 
mind towards them. One brief paragraph 
may be quoted from "The Foundations" to 
show how common-sensible and how far re- 
moved from a merely destructive analysis is 
Mr. Balfor's own attitude to his theme: 

"If 'our ordinary method of interpreting 
sense-perception,' which gives us science, is 
able also to supply us with theology, then at 
least, whether it be philosophically valid or 
not, the majority of mankind may very well 
rest content with it until philosophers come to 
some agreement about a better:' If it does 
not satisfy the philosophic critic, it will prob- 
ably satisfy everyone else; and even the phil- 
osophic critic need not quarrel with its prac- 
tical outcome." 

But the criteria of belief are even less suit- 
able subjects for consideration in the brief 
space of a review than they would be for in- 
clusion within a pocket-book of wise sayings. 
There is other and simpler food for the mind 
in this harvesting of Mr. Balfour's versatile 
intellect. The range of interest in excerpts 
from written or spoken words is wide enough 
to furnish entertainment for divers tastes, a 
fact- wmofc- 4v r doubtless* ^^lkotfo»'-^-tW*~" 
and many another work of "skipping and 
skimming." Mr. Balfour leans most often to- 
wards sheer intellectuality, to a wrestling in 
those gymnasia of human thought where the 
super-mind finds its natural exercise; but on 
occasion he can rival a compatriot philos- 
>..... tt, B /-n*^T53."^r-rihl^ R-,T,.fv, in a de- 
lightful dallying with the smaller change of 
human affairs. And everything, abstract or 
mind plays, he approaches in the same genu- 
inely and generously philosophic spirit. It 
matters not whether his thesis is copyright 
or Cromwell, miracles or music, naturalism or 
novels, reporters or Roman empire, there is 
the like avoidance of "dogmatic serenity," 
cocksureness, and the taken-for-grantcd atti- 
tude (see in particular ''Eugenics"), and al- 
ways an aim of drawing the subject, by the 
method of comparison and contrast, out of its 
separate pigeon hole into the universal light. 
The Amenities of Golf 

As everybody knows, Mr. Balfour is a 
keen and skilful golfer, and that circumstance 
alone would be sufficient to keep him, actu- 
ally or symbolically, in closest touch, with com- 
mon humanity. The practice of golf is as rich 
in irony as any of Mr. Hardy's novels, and 
brings theories to the test of a rigorous ex- 
perience. Mr. Balfour's dissertations on the 
game, written many years sgn, contains pass- 
ages of a style and humor thai might well have 
flowed from Stevenson. For the moment the 
player views the game with the eye of the tm- 

"Since golf, when r has been once wed be- 
gun, exercises this fatal fascination upon its 
votaries, it is, perhaps, fortunate that of all 
aanics it appears to the uninitiated to be the 
most meaningless. A melee at football may 
appear to involve a perfectly unnecessary ex- 
penditure of energy and a foolish risk of 
life and limb. But even the most ignorant can 
see what it is all about. Racquets and tennis, 
again, at once strike the beholder as being 
games which require great quickness of eye, 
and great dexterity of hand. But there ap- 
pears to be something singularly inane and 
foolish about a game of golf. Two middle- 
aged gentlemen strolling across a links, fol 
lowed by two boys staggering under the bur- 
den of a dozen queer shaped implements, each 
player hitting along his own ball for n^> appar- 
ent' object, in no obvious rivalry, and exercis- 
ing in the process no obvious skill, do not 
make up a specially impressive picture to 
those who see it for the first time." 

Not less agreeably in the manner of the 
other essayist is this further picture of the 
game as the wise man, being a player, sees it: 

"A tolerable day, a tolerable green, a toler- 
able opponent, supply, or ought to supply, all 
that any reasonably constituted human being 
should require in the way of entertainment. 
With a fine sea view, and a clear course in 
front of him, the golfer should find no diffi- 
culty in dismissing all worries from his mind, 
and, regarding golf— even, it may be, very in- 
different golf — as, the true and adequate end 
of man's existence. Care may sit behind the

much by one's own skill in horsemanship a* 
by the recklessness or discretion of one s fel- 
lows. The most serious accidents are gener- 
ally the outcome of excessive zeal or bravado 
bv "the other man." 

This does not mean that Prince Edward 
will not engage in horsemanship. On the 
contrary, there is every indication that his

Out of this book one might take many 
more passages which recall the Stevcnsonian 
charm, and it is not surprising thai Mr. Hal- 
four has rendered to his countrymen and I'd 

low-citi/.en in the republic of letters this mag- 
nificent tribute : 

"We may Bay that he was a man of the 
finest and the most delicate imagination, and 
that he Wielded in Ihe service Of that Imagina- 
tion a style which for grace, for suppleness 
for its power of being at once turned to any

Good Advice to Novelists 

In Mr. Balfour's reflections concerning the 
novel, uttered fifteen years ago, there is a 
criticism of contemporary fiction in respect of 
a certain deficiency which has been m recent 
years, and is still being, most abundantly made 
good. Mr. Balfour called attention to the fact 
that while the whole field of history and world 
of geography had been ransacked for subjects 
of fiction, there was one strange omission. In 
the light of modern developments in fiction his 
words are worth recalling: 

"There really is one aspect of human na- 
ture, and the most interesting of all, which, for 
obvious reasons, has been very sparingly 
treated by the novelist. 1 mean the develop- 
ment of character extending through the life 
of the individual. ... A novel never-r-well, 

I was going to put it too strongly — a novel 
seldom or never— not in one case in a hun- 
dred, not in one case in a thousand, attempts 
to take an individual and to trace what in nat- 
ural science would be called his life history. 
The very pleasure which we get from a good 
biography — the tracing of a man's life from 
Childhood to youth, from youth to maturity, 
from maturity to age — is practically excluded 
from the sphere "I tfVe novelist; and it is curi- 
0US thai this should be so at a time when the 
historical aspect oi things, when the life-his- 
mm of individuals, of institution-, pf nations 
and species, of the greal globe itself, forms so 
large a portion of the subject-matter oi sci- 

Mr. Balfour curiously there indicated a 
field for the novelist, which he forecasted was 

unlikely ever to be occupied, but Which, 
whether or no. as a result of that indication, 
ha.- come t 11 be the field of all others in which 
the modern novelisl is active and excels. Two 
most fruitful novelists Of the day, wdio enjoy 
the rate union of literary significance and pop- 
ularity, Mr. Wells and Mr. Bennett, and all 
their school, have enlarged the'bounds of fic- 
tion by studying with more or less scientific 
precision the "life history of the Individual." 

But whether in far-seeing criticism or n 
sympathetic and not less discriminating appre- 
ciation — of which one may add to examples 
already given by Mr. Balfour's discussion of 
music — there is to be found everywhere 
throughout this book those values of scholar- 
ship, insight, sweet reasonableness, and per- 
suasive reasoning which distinguish one of the

refrain from taking an actual share in the 1 
controversies, particularly as many of the 
questions have a strong political flavor. It 
is, however, at these debates that he will make 
acquaintance with many who by sheer ability j 
will ultimately gain a place in the control of; 
public affairs. v 

In the prince's studies, attention will be 
principally directed to "modern" subjects- 
languages, history, and geography, and par- 
ticularly political science and economy. A1-' 
though he will certainly not spend the whole' 
of three years at Oxford, the exact period is 
still uncertain, and his history tutors — Mr. 
Grant Robertson, Fellow of All Souls, and Mr. 
Lionel Smith, Fellow of Balliol— will undoubt- 
edly arrange modified courses. As a student 
of modern subjects, the prince will attend lec- 
tures at other colleges beside his own. 

Prince Edward's university career is un- j 
doubtedly the outcome of a desire of his ma- 
jesty that England's future monarch shall be 
thoroughly equipped for the exalted position 
which he will one day attain. There is every 
indication that King George's desire is that 
Prince Edward, when his time arrives, shall 
be justly known as "the people's monarch." 
Lord Stanley, whose rooms are close to the 
prince's, is the son of a great personal friend 
df the king, and, as such, naturally has a posi- 
tion at Magdalen that will give him social in- 
timacy; but Prince Edward will be given.

vincial grammar schools, and a Rhodes scholar 
from Adelaide university,

dividing the work into numbered sections, to-

easy the reader's choice of subject, and facili- 
tates also reference to practically every non- 
political topic, which, by some miracle of time-

Sunday, November 17, 1912 


HE already magnificent collection 
of Egyptian papyri in the British 
Museum has been still further en- 
riched by the gift by Mrs. Mary 
Greenfield of a splendid Theban 
version of the Book of the Dead of the period 
of the New Empire, iooo B.C. Of this work, 
the museum already possesses fine examples in 
the papyri of Ani, Nu, and Henefer, but the 
latest addition contains a number of hitherto 
unknown literary compositions, hymns, lit- 
anies, and services. Additional importance is 
attached to the papyrus in that it belongs to a 
period of great historical importance, and the 
date of its composition can be fixed with cer- 
tainty. Some selected sheets of the papyrus 
have been arranged on a screen, and are now 
on exhibition in the central Egyptian G*H<?ry. 
The papyrus, which measures one hundred 
and twenty-three feet in length and about 
eighteen inches in width, was found between 
1 871 and 1881 i$ the hiding-place of the royal 
mummies at Deir-el-Bahari. The lady, for, or 
by, whom the papyrus was written was named 
Nesi-ta-nebt Asheru. "She who belongs to the 
'""fir o* Asher," that is the goddess Mut of 
ibes. She was a princess, being the daug h- 

g the daug n- 
f the twenty- 

;^irthe last of the priest kinds of the tweni w 
first dynasty, Painetchem II., by his niece, the 
grand priestess queen Nesi-Khensu, a lady who 

|ftcld-the-highest sacred and, secular of fines. The 

|Mjpjpl!ie6 r 'forms of Painetchem IL, Nesi- 
Khensu, and,the lady of this papyrus can all 
be seen in the royal saloon of the Cairo Mus- 
eum, a fact which has a very personal interest 
to the document now described. The papyrus 
is beautifully written, in a small but very clear 
hieratic script, and some of the chapters are 
given both in hiertic and hieroglyphic. 

The vignettes which accompany and illus- 
trate the chapters and selections are so finely 
drawn and often so pathetic in incident — such, 
for example, as the anxious figure of the prin- 
cess, with her hair loose, watching the weigh- 
ing of her heart, or standing before the Hall 
of Osiris — as to suggest comparison with the 
work of the best artists of Japan. The way in 
which the author has selected the chapters 
from the older Theban version of the Book of 
the Dead shows a thorough knowledge of the 
theology of the period, and the beauty of 
the newly-published hymns and litanies to Os- 
iris, Atem, and Harmachis show the mind oi 
a pious and highly-educated person, says the 
London Standard. 

The whole of the huge papyrus is clearly 
in one handwriting, a rather small feminine 
hand, and we learn from the papyrus that the 
lady held the title of "Worker or Maker of 
the Rolls (books) of Amen-Ra,' King of the 
Gods." She was also a musician, being called 
"Sins'er of the Quarter of Mut Lady of Asher." 
In addition, she was a priestess of Amen and 
"Chief Lady of the Ladies of Amen-Ra"— 
that is, head of the female section of the con- 
fraternity of the great Theban god. 

What manner of woman was this Theban 
authoress? This question can fortunately be 
answered, for her mummy at Cairo has been 
unrolled, and her face is well preserved. The 
face is small, with well-shaped forehead; the 
hair is dark brown and wavy, the eyelashes 
abundant, and the false eyes of dim brown, 
which replace the real, are probably the same 
color as those of her lifetime. From the con- 
dition of the teeth she was at death between 
35 and 40, and about 5 feet 6 inches in height. 

As to the merits of the literary composition 
of this royal lady, lovers of Oriental hymno- 
logy can have little doubt. One very beautiful 
composition is the Litany of Praise sung to 
the Sun-god by the Hours as they follow him 
across the sky to the west. The hours are 
divided into quartets, and the refrain of their 
song is "I have followed the dweller on the 
two horizons to his place of rest in the west 
of heaven. I have sung praises to the dweller 


If you were to take a four-cycle engine from 
your motor boat or your touring car, cover it 
with dirt, bury it some feet below the surface 
of the earth, and exhume it a month later, how 
efficient would it be afterward? Yet this is 
done seemingly with impunity by the Hindu 
fakirs to their very own selves. Dr. Konig- 
berger, a physician in the Punjaub, who- 
doubted these frequently-repeated stories, de- 
termined to make the most rigid tests to ex- 
clude all possible fraud. One of these Brah- 
min fakirs allowed himself to be buried by the 
doctor and his suspicious colleagues in a well- 
fastened and sealed vault. The burial lasted 
such a long time — for forty days — that some 
corn planted upon the soil above the vault 
sprouted into bloom before the unhappy fellow 
was released. Then the Hindu was freed, sub- 
jected by the doctor to restoratives, and lived 
happily ever afterwards. Sir Henry Lawrence, 
an English scientist who assisted the German 
savant, substantiates the whole account. The 
chest in which the fakir was buried was firmly 
sealed, and when the fellow was brought out he 
was cold and apparently lifeless. 

The incontestable proof of the human mech- 
anism's strength and efficiency under the worst 
possible conditions is to be found in the num- 
erous non-fatal injuries and accidents to the 
heart. A boy recently stabbed in a street fray 
was left with the dagger run through the heart. 
He was taken to the hospital and the heart was 
stitched. He recovered. A man of sixty-five, 
suffering from paresis, passed a hatpin into his 
heart. He had some slight disturbance of his 
heart beat for a month and then fully re- 
covered. — Leonard Keene Hirshberg, M.D., in 
Harper's Weekly. 

on the two horizons, and have guided him On 
the road to the west." 

The document belongs to a period of great 
religious controversy in Egypt. The priests 
of Amen had by every possible means sought 
to elevate their divinity above all the other 
gods, and to obliterate as much as possible the 
creed of Osiris. In the papyrus of this lady- 
mother, the (jiuvn Xesi-Khensu, all the func- 
tions of Osiris are usurped by Amen. Here 
the authoress has been most diplomatic, and 
proved herself a theologian of no mean order. 
She blends as it were Osiris and Amen. They 
become aspects or phases of each other, and 
aJPas. Dr. Budge (keeper of the Egyptian de- 

Skmeht of the British Museum) says, she is latter explanati 

able to believe that the "hidden" «|| 
power which was materialized in 
only another fprm of the new birth and resur- 
rection which' was typified by Osiris. Stu- 
dents of Egyptology owe a deep debt of gratis ■] 
tude to Mrs. Greenfield for her gift to the 
nation, and to Dr. Budge for the icpre #ith 
which he has edited the test publication*.

ment says, "If a merchant thrived so that he 
fared thrice over the sea by his own means, 
then he was thenceforth of thaneright wor- 
thy." The numbers of foreign settlers would 
alone make a continental city. In Hatton 
Garden, as an unsparing hand describes it, 
"Shabby men, looking as .though they had not 
ten shillings in the wprld, meet in shabby of- 
fices and taverns to deal in values that run 
into millions sterling yearly." 


Competition may come and go back whence 
it came; London "continues to be the world's 
trading centre because trade is drawn to it by 
an irresistible magnet." Its annual trade is 
computed at £40,800,000,000 — millions "more 
than the entire manufacturing output of the 
United States." Prodigious! Was ever such 
a sight since men began to barter as is seen 
at the insurance offices of London, from 
Lloyd's downwards, with their handsome 
buildings and busy offices? Their turnover 
represents many millions a year. Millions are 
the mere commas in the sentence, in London. 
Its bank deals with the national expenditure 
of about £789^000,000. London, thinks in mil- 
lions — sometimes of needs, sometimes of pos-, 
sessions. Is it too big? No measure can be 
set to growth except the capacity to grow. 


One doesn't hear so much of political bosses 
as of yore. A few years ago the centre of re- 
form fire was bosses and bossism. One of the 
most conspicuous tasks of the diligent muck- 
raker was to ferret out this political bete noire 
and expose him to the public vicy. There 
were municipal bosses, state bosses, and na- 
tional bosses. There was no doubt about their 
activities and their relation to politics and pub- 
lic life. It was their business to keep in the 
background as much as possible and pull the 
strings, quietly but effectively. 

Almost any one, with but a moment's re- 
flection, can easily name a half-dozen bosses 
who, a few jcara ago, flourished and whose 

slates made up by the bosses arc the ones that 
go through, even though they are slightly mod- 
ified here and there by unforeseen exigencies. 
Perhaps it is the bosses that are dead, not 
the idea of bossism. Perhaps a sufficient time 
has not elapsed to grow up a new race to re- 
place the old ones. Perhaps out of the pre- 
sent chaos will arise others who will gather 
up the reins and drive off with master hand. 
That remaps to be seen. The present fact, 
however, is that an unusually large number of 
powerful figures have disappeared from the 
local and national political arenas within a very 
short time, and it may require another wave of 
muck-raking to discover the. real situation.—

HUNDRED years have passed 
since the great city of LlosCQW, 
tlie holy capital of Hoi}- Russia, 
was given to the flames. From 
the first, the catastrophe set an 
indelible stamp upon the memory and the 
imagination of mankind. The immensity 
and the swiftness of the calamity, the mys- 
tery which surrounds it to this day, the aw- 
ful" story of suffering and disaster — scarce 
paralleled in the history of war — to which it 
was the prelude, the elemental passions _ it 
aroused, the vastness of the scale on which 
the tragedy it opened was played out, the 
immeasurable issues to the world which 
hung upon the outcome, the sense of retribu- 
tion, righteous, predestined, inevitable, that 
slowly gathers over all, arid not ^ least,: tlift 
genius and the glory; the foUy and the' doom, 
of the chief actor, give the whole drama that 
turns upon xk a greatness and a completeness

dering ruins. At the time, all seem to have 

3j> ■ Relieve that Count Rostopchin. the govcr- 
nor. had deliberately ordered that Moscow 
should be fired. There is evidence for^ and 
against this view, including the irreconcilable 

statements made by Rostopchin in Russia, 
arid by Rostopchin after he had settled in 
France, and it cannot be either proved or dis- 
proved. It seems incredible that either the 
Russian emperor or the Russian commander- 
in-chief was privy to so desperate a step, 
for, had they intended to risk the destruc- 
; tion of the old capital, they would almost 
certainly have defended it, and still more 
certainly they would have withdrawn the 
thousands of Russian wounded who perished 
in the flames. As a purely military measure, 
the appalling work of ruin probably had no 
great effect. Large quantities of food and 
other stores were burnt, but enough re- 
mained in the cellars, provisioned for a Rus- 
sian winter, to support the invaders for a 
season. Yet, beyond all doubt, it was thi* 
act that sealed the fate of .the campaign and 
the doom of the grand army. Through all 
the fatigues and hardships which had thinned 
their ranks, from the bright summer morn- 
ing when their numbers and their bearing* 
as the endless columns crossed the Niemen, 
filled Napoleon's heart with exultation, and 
through the slaughter of Borodino, the blood- 
iest and most obstinate battle they had 
known, Moscow had been their goal. There 
they had confidently expected to find the re- 
pose, the riches and the pleasures they had 
won in Cairo and in Milan, in Rome and in 
Vienna, in Berlin and in Madrid. The fruit 
of all their labors was at last within their 
grasp, and before they could taste it, it had 
turned to dust and ashes. The hardiest of 
veterans are, after all, but men. The blow 
broke the discipline, and with it the spirit, of 
the soldiers, while it gave a fresh shock to 
the waning confidence of the higher officers 
in their ever-victorious chief. 

The moral effect upon the Russians was 
not less marked. From the beginning, pas- 
sions which make a people most stubborn 
and most reckless had animated the nation. 
They were patriots resisting foreign invaders 
Upon their own soil; and they were sons of 
the Holy Orthodox church fighting for their 
faith against heretics and unbelievers, as they 
and their fathers for long centuries had 
had fought fought for it against pagan Tar- 
tars and infidel Turks. The fury of these 
passions had forced the Russian commander 
against his better judgment, to give battle to 
Napoleon. The burning of Moscow, the cen- 
tre of the national history, the home of so 
many sacred shrines and so many holy tradi- 
tions, wrought them to the supreme pitch. 
The Russians believed that the French had 
perpetrated the s^criligious crime, and the be- 
lief steeled their hearts. It is not easy to 
surmise what were the real thoughts of Na- 
poleon as he sat amongst the ruins in the 
palace of Peter the Great. Like Caesar, he 
was superstitious. A fall from his lit use on 
the Niemen had seemed of ill augury. lie 
disliked the way the ravens had hovered 
over him as his men pulled down, the great 
cross from J van's tower. Did he really de- 
clare years afterwards, as it is said he did, 
that his evil genius had appeared to him and 
foretold his end? But no promptings of su- 
perstition were needed to convince an intel- 
lect less clear than his that the blow was 
heavy. His letter to Alexander and his ef- 
forts at negotiation show he knew that well, 
though he did not yet admit to himself that 
it was fatal to the campaign, and that it had 
shaken the entire fabric of his power. lie 
wanted to retreat without seeming to retreat. 
There was talk of a demonstration against 
St. Peterburg — a project which has been 
variously judged. There was talk of winter- 
ing in Moscow. But the bravest of his gen- 
erals would not hear of fresh adventures. 
They urged him to retreat, and retreat at 
once. He hesitated, and attempted to make 
his way south to Kaluga. The battle of Mal- 
oyaroslavetz, and. it is said, the insistence 
of his lieutenants, finally led him to take the 
route by Smolensk — the fatal route, which 
was to witness the last extremities of human 
misery; the route that led l.» the Berezina. 
to Vilna, to Srnoigoni; the route which swal- 

lowed up the last remnant of the grand army 
thai had followed him. They were wiped 
out; they had disappeared, and the emperor 
had fled— six months after he had kepi his 
court of vassal and dependent kings at Dres- 

So the apell winch this man had cast ttpOn 
the world was broken, and, in a very real 
sense, the burning of Moscow had broken it. 
Battles of giants were yet to come before his 
career was done — the days of Leipzig, the 
wonderful winter campaign, and the day of

A German Legend 

If vou visit the castle of Nuremburg, in 
South Germany, you are certain to be shown 
a mark, said to he that of a horse's hoof, on 
the top of the outer wall; and the following 
story will he told to you, to account for its 
presence : 

Some four hundred years ago, there was 
constant war between the Count of Gailin- 
gen and the citizens of Nuremburg, and, after 
numerous encounters, the count had the mis- 
fortune to fall into the hands of his enemies, 
and was at once imprisoned in one of the 
gloomy dungeons of Nuremburg castle. 

That was bad enough, but worse was to 
follow, for, on the meeting of the magis- 
trates, the young count was sentenced to be 
beheaded, and the sentence was to 'be car- 
ried out on the following day. 

First of all, however, according to "old 
Nuremburg custom, the condemned man was 
allowed to have a last request granted-^-what- 
ever that request might be. 

"Let me," said the count, "once -more 
mount my faithful charger and ride him 
round the courtyard of the castle." 

No sooner said than done! The beauti- 
ful black steed, that had so often carried his 
master to victory, was saddled, and horse 

and master met once more under open sky.' 
The count patted the horse's 'arched neck, 
rind leaped into the saddle; the horse began! 
to prance, and Kick up his heels as he hrid. 

HE new yellow republic, says a 
writer in The Frankfurter Zei- 
tung, is determined to improve 
the sanitation and hygiene of the 
country. China, the birthplace of 
the bubonic plague, is described as the most 
unhygienic country in the world. In the first 
place it is overpopulated, or rather overcrowd- 
ed, and there are no open places in most great 
cities, with few exceptions. Drainage is in 
such cities impossible and the death rate is 
high, although without accurate figures it is 
impossible to give reliable statistics. As China 
contains a fourth part of the population of the 
globe, sanitary reform much necessarily be 
slow. Some reasons for the difficulty of the 
work are sketched as follows: 

"If any one takes >bnle single town of 

Cl^«riot<li%^arger class; and considers its con? 
ditioU from a European standpoint, and thinks, 
of raising the Asiatic city to a social and sani- 
tary level with European cities, he will see how 
vast the task is. 

"The fifst difficult problem in China is the 
overcrowding of "the population. Of course, 
this does not; apply to the country universally. 
China is not overcrowded with population in

"Some improvement in the present condi- 
tion of things has doubtless been already 
brought about by legislation. But the meas- 
ures taken have so far proved wofully inade- 
quate and the work before the government is 
gigantic. So long as the Manchus reigned in 
China no thought at all was given to the pub- 
lic health. There was no law of quarantine, no 
hospitals for isolating those afflicted with con- 
tagious diseases, and actually no measures 
taken for checking the spread of epidemics, so 
that China has a yellow peril not only in poli- 
tical and commercial relations, but more than 
all in a hygienic sense. Nor must we forget 
that the bubonic plague which in the nineties 
cost India millions of human lives and has not 
yet been totally eliminated, but has spread to 
every, quarter 'of the world, originated in

timate, to his will, in his contenjpjTfpr all law 
and right, and in his conviction that he could 
trample on alllaw and right unpunished. The 
temper ^ which the burning of Moscow 
aroused, if not the burning itself, showed, as 
Borodino had shown, and as the wars in Aus- 
tria and Spain had shown before, that this 
unmeasured and unbalanced arrogance had 
provoked a new and indomitable spirit in 
the conquered. The. days of easy victories 
and "political" warfare were rib more. Plun- 
der and oppression, outrages on the cher- 
ished traditions of religion and of race, had 
filled men's hearts with the resolve to free 
themselves or to die. It was this spirit in 
the Russian people, from the tsar to the peas- 
ant, far more than the material difficulties of 
the campaign, which enabled sagacious ob- 
servers to predict its end. Napoleon was 
warned and for a moment impressed, but his 
pride and his lust of domineering, coupled 
with his blind hatred of England—for it was 
England he had sought to strike through 
Russia — clouded and perverted his judgment.. 
It is the justice of the dread chastisement 
that began with the burning of Moscow 
which lends to. the awful drama of 1812 a 
moral grandeur unsurpassed in history. To 
millions of the generation then alive, it was 
well-nigh what the rout of Xerxes was to the 
Greeks of Salamis — the visible and fearful 
judgment of the Unseen Power. Never had 
men beheld the hand of Nemesis more clearly ; 
seldom has it struck a blow so merited and 
so terrible. The doom of Napoleon and of 
his host is a warning for all time that no 

been taught to do. This made such a dust" 
that the attendants were glad to shefter themr 
selves in the guard room. 

"Let the count enjoy himself; it is his 
last chance," said the jailers. ''Our walls are 
too high for escape, and we can take things 

easwy. . j^^^g^^^.-. 

So they troubled themselves but little 
over either horse or rider, and the count felt 
that now or never was his chance. 

The walls were very high, and beyond 
them was a wide ditch, so that his jailers 
were right in thinking escape impossible. 
Yet "impossible" is an unknown word to 
some men, and the count was one of these. 

He bent down carelessly over his horse's 
mane, and whispered some words in his ear. 
Whether the good beast really understood 
or not cannot be said, but the next minute 
there was a rapid gallop across the courtyard. 
The count dug his spurs deeply into the sides 
of liis steed, and the latter, with a supreme 
effort, bounded up, and reached the wide 
brim of the castle wall. An instant's pause, 
and he had leaped the wide ditch, and in a 
few seconds more both horse and rider were 
out of reach of all pursuers. 

This story must be true, say 
burg people, for there is the

cities are to be seen houses huddled close, wall 
to wall, without open places or parks or public 
streets between them." 

Of course, this description does not apply to 
cities like Nanking, which was rebuilt, on more 
or less European lines, w after the devastation 
of the Taiping rebellion.- In such cities as this 
are to be found unoccupied areas with trees 
and even cultivated fields. But the Chinese 
dwelling houses are insanitary from other

"It is further to be noted that most 'Chinese 
houses consist of but one, the ground, floor, 
very seldom of two storeys, and never of more 
than two. Another important fact is that in 
nnost Chinese towns there is a dearth of houses 
for rent. The consequence are thattthe health, 
even the life, of hundreds of thousands is be- 
ing undermined. In those narrow streets 
thorough scavenger work and cleansing by 
water can not be accomplished ; the houses ad- 
mit no air and little, light, and it is absurd to 
talk of drainage in such places. . . . Under 
these circumstances domestic life in a Chinese 
town goes on in the street. The booths where 
food is sold stand in the dust along the middle 
of the road, the street is kitchen and dining- 
room, and so the whole family is exposed to 
the disagreeable and unwholesome atmosphere 
of the highway." :

ARIOUS interesting archaeolosri- 
cal discoveries have been an- 
nounced in the last few days. 
Perhaps the most important re- 
port is supplied by a correspond- 
ent at Rome, who sends an account which 
Prof. Dante Vaglieri gave him of the recent 
excavations at Ostia. 

Although Prof. Vaglieri remarks that the 
present season has been devoted rather to the 
removal of the earth thrown up during the pre- 
vious excavations of Petrini, Visconte and 
Senator Lanciani than to fresh excavations, his 
list of discoveries forms a very creditable rec- 
ord of seven months' work. His first task was 
to complete the excavation of the firemen's 
barracks, of which about half had been laid 
bare by Senator Lanciani. These barracks pos- 
sessed two fountains and a Splendid entrance, 
and were two stories. Inside the building 
1'iof. Vaglieri has found several fragments of 
inscriptions, recording those firemen who had 
received grants of public gTriinJ and all dating 
from the second half of the second century of 
our era, but subsequently used as parts of the 
framework of the doors and windows of the 
restored barracks. Prof. Vaglieri has also 
shown that at a still later period, about the 
Fourth century, the barracks were converted 
into a private house. At that date the build- 
ing was already falling to pieces, for a great 
heap of broken bricks belonging to thai period 
has been found at the entrance. The complete 
absence of all statues within the edifice — a 
fact already noted by Senator Lanciani — is 
probably due to their transport to the new bar- 
racks of the firemen at Porto where the bases 
of such statues have been found. 

Next comes the excavation of the Firemen's 
street (via del Vigili), a road which no longer 
exists in its original condition. The present 
season's work has revealed a bath of about 50 
A.D., and a mosaic, cut into several pieces by 
the drain that was made when the road, was 
constructed. This mosaic contains squares 
with shields, four of which bear allegorical 
representations of the provinces with which 
< Ktia had most trade — viz., Sicily (represented 
by the usual three r leggcd Trinacria), Egypt 
(by the head of a woman and a crocodile), Af- 

rica (by another female head, covered with a 
leopard's skin), and Spain (by a third. woman's 
head, encircled by an olive wreath). Close to 
one of these four shields is a man's head with 
wings, representing the wind favorable to the 
trade of that particular region. In this street 
there have been also found many water pipes, 
mostly bearing the name of Hadrian, but in 
some cases those of Caracalla and Alexander 
Severus, and in one that of Trebonianus Callus 
(251 A.D.) — the latest yet found in or near 

In the portico behind the theatre Prof. 
Vaglieri has found further seats of the guilds. 
These include the stuppatores restiones 
("makers of tow and ropes"), the navicularii 
Missucnscs ("boat owners from Missua, near 
Carthage), with two of their barks represented 
in full sail; the navicularii of Hippo Diar- 
rbytus, the modern Bizerta, and the navicularii 
Of another place, difficult to decipher, but 
which Prof. Vaglieri conjectures to have been 
-Musluvium, in Algeria. 

The discovery of a large ancient limekiln 
near the west side of the temple of Vulcan ac- 
counts for the destruction of all that once stood 
there; evidently the district of Ostia nearest 
Rome was abandoned early. 

Prof. Vaglieri has continued his studies of 
the eight tombs, which all date from the end 
of the republic. Me has found in them sphinxes, 
Cupids, and other artistic objects, made of 
bone. He has also found the tomb of a soldier 
of the sixth Praetorian Cohort, to whom the 
people of Ostia had given the site of the tomb 
and the public funeral for having died in the 
attempt to extinguish a fire. Prof. Vaglieri 
supposes from this that the sixth cohort was 
stationed at Ostia before Tiberius brought it 
to Rome. 

The excavations, a model of their kind, will 
be continued during the summer. It is special- 
ly interesting at the present moment, when the 
war is proceeding in Libya, to see how close 
were the trade relations between Rome's an- 
cient port and the north of Africa. 

On July 18 a fine sarcophagus was found 
on the Via Tiburtina, near Rome, and from 
the same city comes word that the excavations 
in the Forum of N.erva have led to the discov- 
ery of the base of the western of the two stand- 

ing columns, the so-called '"Colonnacce," 
which are all that remains of the portico of the 
once famous Temple of Minerva, built by Dor- 
mitian. These columns have long remained 
half buried in the ground ; the present excava- 
tions have shown that the total depth of the 
western column below the surface is not less 
than 16 feet 4 inches. 

Other excavations are being carried on at 
the foot of the celebrated Torre delle Milizie, 
vulgarly but inaccurately known as the 
"Tower of Nero" (although it was not erected 
till about the year 1200. It now appears, how- 
ever, this mediaeval tower rests in part upon 
ancient Roman ruins and in part upon an an- 
cient paved street. 

Another mediaeval tower, the leaning 
Torre Azuielli, or Bologna, which was built in 
1 109, and is 320 feet high and 3 feet out of the 
perpendicular, is at present exercising the 
artistic world of Italy. The fall of the Cam- 
panile of St. Mark's made the Bolognesi ner- 
vous about the taller of their two leaning 
towers, and a commission of engineers re- 
cently advised that it should be strengthened 
by hoops of iron. A discussion is also going 
on with regard to the restoration of the me- 
diaeval "loggetta," erected about 1401 by the 
powerful Bentivoglio clan at the base of the 

Important archaeological work is reported 
from Jerusalem, where remarkable discoveries 
have been made by a party of French savants 
engaged in extensive excavations on the south- 
eastern slope of the temple hill — the Ophel of 
Scripture. A number of very early tombs con- 
taining pottery were discovered, but unfor- 
tunately only a few of the graves were suffi- 
ciently well preserved to enable their exact 
age to be determined. Judging from the frag- 
ments of pottery and other objects which were 
found, they appear to date from about 3000 
B.C. — 2000. Some of the fragments resemble 
the class of ware discovered by Schliemann at 
Hissarlik (Troy) and other places in Asia 
Minor, while some show traces . of archaic 
Greek influence. There were also found some 
broken figures of Ashtaroth, the Canarnitish 
form of the Babylonian goddess Ishtar, but no 
^| inscriptions, either in Babylonian or Phoeni- 
cian, were brought to light

When Horace taught us in our youth, 
My Postumus, that years were flying, 

We laughed; the venerable truth 
Was evident beyond denying. 

We found it, learned at second hand, 
The dreariest of commonplaces; 

Today we better understand 
The meaning of Eheu fugaces. 

But, though 'tis well nigh fifty year 

Since first you sucked your baby coral,- 

You shall not on your birthday hear 
From me the dark Horatian moral. 

You still can walk your thirty mile, 
Your eye is clear, your hand is steady; 

And who that once had seen you smile, 
Would call you middle-aged already? 

Yet boys at college think us old, 
And grow polite and deferential ; 

Young girls are either shy and cold, 
Or but too kind and confidential. 

And there is many another sign 

To warn us that our age advances; 

Our care, for instance, how we dine. 
Our weariness of new romances. 

New catch words to our ears are brought, 
Ideals, too, have changed their fashion ; 

Now art would masquerade as thought, 
And thought apologize for passion. 

Some conscious of their briefer day, 
Refuse to listen, vexed and puzzled ; 

Cry '"Would that we were well away! 
The world is mad and should be muzzled." 

"Labuntur anni," they will sigh. 

"And few and evil those remaining." 
If time is shorter, we reply^ 

The less to spare for mere complaining. 

Why measure life by years alone, 
Like almanac and coffin makers? 

Are miles of barren heath and stone 
For profit worth your hundred acres? 

Youth's large estate, with weed and tare 

O'ergrown, was picturesque and charming J 

Our narrower fie+a more Adieat shall beam 
Perhaps, witfW more intensive farming. , 

Nor grudge we youth his morning dreams, 
His cloudy realm of vague ambition; 

Our Hill of Difficulty gleams 
The mount of a serener vision. 

To closer grips with fact we draw, 
Even failure is a way of knowing; 

Our least experience a straw 

To show how winds of God are blowing. 

So, freighted with the gifts of time, 
Nor mourning what is past recovery, 

We hold, as in our earlier prime, 
Our life a voyage of discovery. 

And if on no Utopian shore 

We land, as dreamed our young bravado, 
A league or two we may explore 
And chart the road to El Dorado.

(Copyright by Clive Phillips-Wulley.) 

R. JOHN E- EWART has done 
me the honor of sending me a 
copy of a pamphlet upon Can 
adian independence, for which I 
am obliged, and with which I 

heartily disagree. 

1 do not admit that the "two words 'self- 
government' and 'independence' mean pre- 
cisely' the same thing." 

T agree that Canada has self-government, 
ti full' and generous share of it, and as far as 
concerns home politics it is reasonable that she 
should have it, but in world politics she not 
only is not bidet 
^enough to aspire to indepe 

In the domain of wort* ^litei 8&e» 3** 
the other great dominions, has only one chance 
^P Wfti#% Mi 'stature, and that is as 
an integral portion of that enjpire of which she 
has the ho*3£ to be a part. , 

The sooner this fact is realised, and foolish 
rtmbitions abandoned, which can only end in 
disaster to Canada, and loss to the empire, the 

' * "&■ To be independent, a nation must be 

. that nobody wants what she has got 

111 so strong, that she can keep unassisted, 
what she holds. Canada is not in either of 
these positions,, She it. on ttt^ contg«y t » 

ceedingly rich in those things which ilte strong 
•predatory nations ■ of the world covet, land 
and natural products, and she is so weak in a 
military sense that if she stood alone her 
wealth and her defencelessness would form an 
irresistible temptation to the crowded fighting 
nations of the world. 

She is happy in being part of a great em- 
pire, whose policy it is to give the fullest 
measure of self-government to all its compon- 
ent parts; an empire which, if united, is still 
so strong as to be unassailable, but for Canada 
the inevitable result of independence in its 
fullest sense, would be incorporation in the 
neighboring republic, er -ailing an absolute 
loss of national identity (and self-govern- 
ment) or conquest by one of the great nations 
who have not forgotten that wealth needs in- 

I admit with pride that Canada is a nation, 
and rejoice that she is likely to become one of 
the greatest of nations in that federation of na- 
tions which makes up the British Empire, but 
this does not mean independence. 

Every one of these nations" is dependent 
upon the others for its position in the world, 
if not for its very existence. 

Might is still right in the region of world 
politics in spite of tall talk and the Hague trib- 
unal, and Canada has not the might to enable 
her to play a lone hand against such players 
as Germany and Japan. 

The world is not civilized yet, if civilization 
means a cessation of competition between the 
world's nations. 

Probably civilization is not much nearer/in 
the world, than socialism in any particular 
state of it, and inasmuch as a cesation of com- 
petition would mean an end to progress, it is 
just as well for the world that this is so. It is 
only those who are not fit 'to compete who 
want to stop competition. 

For men and nations who want to get on, 
or even to hold their own, it is just as well to 
realize that the old law still holds, that men 
must fight to live. 

This article is not written as an answer to 
Mr. Ewart's pamphlet; That I am taking by 
the way, because the Japanese question oft'ords 
a line instance of our "independence," but be- 
fore goint; to that, let me call attention to our 
srreat sea borne trade. That depends for its 
success, lor its very existence, upon the pro- 
tection afforded it by the British Xavv; not 
upon the protection wmich could be afforded 
it by the Niobe and Rainbow, or the ships to 
be built when Canada has made up her mind 
where and when to build them. 

The wheat we grow (as to the major portion 
of it), is comparatively worthless if we cannot 
ship it, and we cannot ship it safely if the sea 

Will anyone contend that an "independent 
Canada could keep the sea roads safe for her- 
self for many years to come? 

Sir Wilfrid Laurier at any rate did not 
think so when in 1904 the Agnes Donahoe with 
a Canadian crew was seized by the Venezuelan 
Government for alleged poaching. The adver- 
sary was only poor little Venezuela, but the 
premier of "independent" Canada called the 
immediate attention of the British Government 
to the seizure; and relied upon the British 
Navy tn get Canada out of the gcrapc 

Is that independence? 
Will anyone pretend that in our many dis- 
putes with our great neighbor we are inae* 

Assuming, to please Mr. Pwart, that Japan 
and Canada are two independent powers, that 
is to say, dependent only upon themselves for 
their national lives, here is a rough estimate' 
of their comparative positions, bearing in mind 
that the two great posessions which all nations 
covet, are vacant and habitable spaces, suit- 
able for the reception of their surplus popula- 
tion and trade, and conversely that the great- 
est temptations which a young country can of- 
fer are unoccupied areas and potential wealth 
inadequately developed. 

In roughly approximate figures Japan had 
before the incorporation of Korea into the Jap- 
anese Empire, about 50,000,000 people in an 
area of about 160,000 square miles, or more 
than 300 people to the square mile* , 

Canada has about eight million people in 
.about three and ffiiree-quarters millions square 
miles, or about two to the square mile., 

Obviously, to an unprejudiced judge, Can- 
ada has more land than she wants and Japan 
less than she needs. > 

This at any rate might fairly be expected 
to be the view taken by Japan and if in world 
politics "might'' be right, it looks as if Japan 
were in a position to take what she wants from 
an "independent" Canada, for even at the time 



pendent; that w e r ely;ttp6n our own s tr e ngth 

for a considerate or fair hearing; that it is|no* 
the weight of Britain's guns behind us which 
make the other nations civil? 

But let us get to Japan, for after all Japan 
affords the best illustration of my position, and 
let us begin by putting a few facts quite plain- 
ly without any "high falutin" nonsense about 
civilization and national morals. 

Let us begin by stating, brutally if you will, 
that in world politics, nations have no morals. 
Germany is about as civilized a nation as the 
world boasts today. What about her morals 
in world politics? Examine them by the light 
of the Ems telegram: remember the cold cal- 
culation with which Bismarck prepared the 
wars which led to the creation of Germany; 
remember his own woeds, that the only thor- 
oughly healthy state is a thoroughly selfish one 
or his master's to the effect that any war was 
justified if it added to the prestige of his peo- 

Or if it pleases you to- regard Germany as 

exceptional, consider the morality of Europe's 
action with regard to the Shimonoseki treaty 
made between Japan and China in 1895. 

Japan had beaten China in fair fight, and as 
the reward for her efforts obtained from China 
Port Arthur and the Liao-tung peninsula. But 
Port Arthur, an ice free port, was the object 
of Russia's ambition. It was essential to her 
national development. There were other rea- 
sons which moved the other European powers, 
with which I have not time to deal here, but 
they were sufficient, and the result was that a 
combination of Russia, Germany and France 
compelled Japan to give up that which her peo- 
ple had fairly won by their courage and the ex- 
penditure of their blood and money, though 
that which they were compelled to abandon 
(by a display of might to which they could 
offer no effectual resistance) was as vital to 
them as it was to Russia. 

So much for national morals. Is it to be 
expected that Japan when her turn comes, will 
be more moral than the much professing white 
races, with whom she has dealt? 

of the Russo-Japanese war, japan naa more 
than five men to Canada's one, and could and 
did put into the field against the Russians 
is of various categories to the number of 

and regular soldiers in the same period of 
time that Japan could assemble, ready to take 
the field, half a million veteran troops. For 
the United States to enlist, equip and train to 
the same degree of efficiency a similar force 
would require not less than three years." and 

long before that time, no one else intervening 
to help Canada and the States, the west coast 
of this continent, together with all the import- 
ant strategic positions in the North Pacific 
would have passed into the hands of Japan. 

And if we turn to the naval power of this 
possible ally of an independent Canada, what 
does this American witness tell us? 

I will try to summarize in a page what he 

elaborates in a book, and might almost be 

written in a sentence thus: As the U. S. navy 

? is '&jii#fa'-m0^ it would' not -have a 

fighting <jfeance against Japan. 

Jfi modern naval warfa^. U& •■'^W'ffjfH 
there are three fighting ^^P9m0^f *» **& 
tleships, armored cruisers, md/jpfffp^ cratfc 
In these lines the States have ^fff^cJass bat- 
tleships, and Japan only 14. but on these the 
U.S. A. have only 104 heavy guns to 132 on the 
Japanese battleships; and he quotes Rojestven* 
Sky to show that it is, the heavy calibre guns 
which, win naval battles. 

I ask any honest Canadian (party politi- 
cians barred) how many trained soldiers does 
he think Canada could put into the field, in 
case of a Japanese invasion, and I ask him to 
remember before answering that I am not 
talking of the "potential military" resources of 
his country, but of the men actually trained, 
equipped, and ready to fight, because, in these 
days of highly complicated military machinery, 
we cannot make soldiers whilst the enemy 
waits, even out of such material as Canada can 
provide, neither will gold today win against 

As to Canada's naval position compared to 
that of Japan, it may be described as that of 
the two old cruisers Niobe and Rainbow 
against the third strongest navy in the world, 
comprising amongst other things before the 
end of 191 1, eight twenty-thousand-ton battle- 
ships. . 

But the discussion of a possible war be- 
tween Japan and an independent Canada be- 
comes farcical. Bearing mind that soldiers 
take time to make, it is scarcely less farcical 
to discuss Canada's chances, if instead of be- 1 
ing independent, she were allied to, i.e. depen- 
dent upon, her big and wealthy neighbor, who 
with a reputation for business shrewdness ig- 
nores the necessity of insurance. 

In Japan the army and navy are placed be- 
yond the reach of politics. In the States, the 
whole defence of the nation is at the mercy of 
a mob, capable of being humbugged by any 
cheese paring politician or fooled by any anti- 
military faddist. 

The result of this is that one of the richest 
and most vulnerable nations has a. navy which 
could hardly get into the Pacific in time of 
war, which is untried and seriousiy doubted 
by some of its own military critics, and an 
army of some 50,000 men. 

This is what Mr. Homer Lea (endorsed by 
the late Chief of Staff of the U.S. army) has to 
say on the subject: "Under the present mili- 
tary system this country could not mobilize in 
any one place a field army of nineteen thous- 

Qf a r mo r ed auiscis the U.&A. ha v e is to 
Japan's 14 and in this line again Japan has the 
majority, of heavy guns, 39 to i& • Jn torpedo 
boats the USA, have only 36; to 


proceed with its construction," and will call 
your attention to the history of the Suez Can- 
al, built by France and controlled by England; 
as an illustration of the necessity of control- 
ling the. adjacent strategic, positions, which 
he suggests, in the case of the Panama Canal, 
are at present at the mercy of Japan. 

J have said nothing hitherto of the quality 
of the l.S.A. navy compared with the quality 
of its Japanese rival. 

The American. Homer Lea, has a great deal 
to say upon that subject, and nothing so far 
as 1 have read comforting to an American. 

He complains of the personnel of the U. 
S. A. navy, that the terms of naval service are 
such that its officers are too old for their 
work when they reach an important command 
and that they do not get enough experience In 
Work of the higher -commands to make 
competent therein, and he illustrates this 
1 a titSie*s|^wing that an English naval cap- 
tain fc^Mfc 35 and has 11 years experienfcfe 
in the work of that rank, whereas an Ameri- 
can naval captain is 55 and has four years ex- 
perience j that the ftv^e ajge oi a Japanese 
sea going #ur,<#W>C^ 
American of the **fw ffpfc^ ^ 
mg 11 years service in that grade and the lat- 
tar, one 

79, and in destroyers jrt0 54» so that in two 

of the three fighting lines there is a tremendous 

preponderance in favor of Japan, and as reganpg 
heavy guns the eastern power has 161 to the 
western power s 120. 

But there is another line of immense im- 
portance in such a war as we are contemplating, 
that of the transports. In a war, the result of 
which would depend largely upon the mobility 
of the opposing armies, and the seizure of un- 
defended strategic positions it is not reassuring 
to remember that though the^States control 
the important strategic positions in the Pacific, 
these positions are naked of/ defence, and the 
Japanese have at least 95 steamers capable of 
carrying 200,444 troops as compared to 10 Am- 
erican transports capable of carrying 16,000. 

But you may tell me that the enormous 
wealth of the States and the comparative 
poverty of Japan will set the balance right 
in favor of the States. 

To that I reply that it may be so, if suf- 
ficient time be given for the proper expendi- 
ture of. that wealth, but that is extremely un- 
likely and that, moreover, the discrepancy be- 
tween the wealth of the States and that of 
Japan is not so great as it seems, because the 
purchasing power of money is so much great- 
er in Japan than it is in America. 
. The cost of labor in the States is said to 
be from $4 to $5 per diem; in Japan it is 45 
cents a day. This means that the construc- 
tion of ships and the cost of munitions of war 
in Japan would be less than one-tenth of their 
cost in the States and it means also that Jap- 
an could maintain a standing peace army of 
i million men for the money which the States 
spend upon their 50,000. 

Or you may tell me that the completion of 
the Panama Canal will alter all the conditions 
in this possible theatre of war. 

That may be, but the Panama Canal is not 
completed yet, and our American author will 
tell you that "unless the U.S.A. is willing to 
increase the naval and military strength pro- 
portionate to the dangers that at once become 
existent with its completion, it is a mistake to 

in a 


Moreover, he contends that there are gr|ye 
faults in the construction of the U. S. battle- 
ships; that th^ artaor belts extending only 
six inches abo v e wat e * lin e are insufficiei^f. 
that the gun ports are so large as to expose 
guns and crews to destruction ; that the navy 
has not enough destroyers to protect her one 
Atlantic fleet from destruction at the hands of 
the torpedo flotilla of an enemy, and finally, 
that "the lowness of the American ships seri- 
ously affects their fighting qualities," 
point being that when travelling fast or 
rough sea, these ships could not use 
their guns. 

Upon these points I cannot speak with ex- 
pert knowledge, but the writer I have quoted 
appears to do so, and he is endorsed, it must 
be remembered', by an ex-chief of staff of the 
country criticized, and this, at any rate, we 
may be allowed to say, that the Japanese navy 
has been tested and in a rough sea, where the 
Russians will admit that she did use all her 
guns and that effectively. 

The U. S. A. navy has not yet been tested, 
except upon a summer cruise, and of that, per- 
haps, the less said 'the better. 

On the whole, it would appear from a con- 
sideration of Mr. Homer Lea's evidence that 
we need more naval and military strength than 
either Canada or the States, or both combined, 
seem to possess, to secure our independence 
against that one oriental power whose people 
we are both determined to exclude with a 
minimum of politeness and restraint. 

So far we have escaped the peril we have 

Our moneymaking classes have brought 
the Japs over to do cheap work for them ; they 
have turned the mouth of the Fraser, which' 
used to be a school for our own boatmen, into 
a profitable nursery for the Japanese navy. 
With luck, the bad luck we deserve for our 
blindness, we shall do the same with our deep 
sea fisheries, and if at any time that Anglo- 
Japanese treaty, which is our true shield 
against the Orient, be withdrawn, or replaced 
by a German-Japanese alliance, God help the 
Pacific coast of America, for He alone will be 
able to do so. 





MIS Balkan conflict, babe of a 
campaign as it yet is, has never- 
theless already poured Out much 
wisdom in the shape of "les- 
sons" for those with ears to 
hear. Some of them are platitudes and some 
are not, but both alike arc valuable, and both 
will be forgotten as soon as the occasion has 
passed, writes "Linesman," in The London 
J );iily Mail. 

For war is the very Cassandra of prophet- 
esses. It is her fate to "enter raving," as 
Shakespeare brings her in, to shriek out warn- 
ings to unbelieving ears, to fill "ten thousand 
eves with prophetic tears," and "pay betimes 
a moiety of that mass of moan to come" ; to 
do all this and then to be forgotten as a sum- 
mer storm. Nothing is so utterly unproduc- 
tive. She does not even engender experience, 
except in trifling details. Men learn how to 
improve their rifles, their marching boots and 
water bottles, but they learn so little how to 
do without their greatest dread that they 
would seem not to have learned to dread it 
at all, did not a myriad of pale and startled 
faces look up from every corner of the earth 
at the sound of the distant trumpet. 

For they have not even learned to expect 
it, to recognize it — and this is one of the plati- 

tudes — as inevitable as the return of itfl Own 
"portent blazing in the sky," the comel hom- 
ing after its enormous flight. The last war 
is always the very last war. Crystal Palaces 
of hope and unction rise like exhalations at 
the conclusion of every campaign to mark a 
millennium. Was it a piece of sly humor in 
Paxton to construct his edifice — the "Mausol- 
eum of War," it. was called — of glass' 

At any rate, how soon was it shivered by 
the frosts of the Crimea, by the blazing rays 
of Hindustan, by the terrible concussions of 
Gettysburg, Koniggratz and Sedan, by the 
heavy snows of Shipka Pass, by the sheer 
weight of dead Upon Manchurian hills, by a 
thousand combats, by uncountable corpses, 
falling like hailstones on its silly panes from 
that day to this. 

Once grasp the inevitability of the periodic 
return of war, and you have gone far towards 
•preventing it; which is no more a paradox 
than to say that it was the very regularity of 
the return of pestilence which, after long ages, 
taught dull man first to look out for it and 
then to forestall and forbid it. Whether war 
is in reality as harmful as the visitation of a 
plague, or, as some maintain, as healthy as the 
rotation of crops, is, however, an old debate. 
It might be as dangerous to humanity to in- 
troduce a perpetual dove and olive branch as 

it has been to take rabbits into Australia, or 
into Ceylon that beautiful lantana which, first 
introduced by a lady as an ornament to her 
garden, has ended by choking the island in 
its grip of gold. 

Peace may, and has, ruined many a nation- 
ality with its surfeit of everything except 
those tonics, privation and sacrifice. But the 
severest war wreaks little practical injury. 

Even to one generation the death of many 
of the strongest of its sons, instead of, as at 
the hand of disease, the elimination of her 
weakest, affects but little the virility of a state. 
The French lost 400,000 men in the ten years 
from Austerlitz to Waterloo. America gave 
of her small quiverful in North and South 
320,000 in two years; all these in pitched bat- 
tles alone, and. of course, not all killed, though 
of the wounded many died and many more 
were useless as citizens thereafter. At Boro- 
dino alone 75,000 men bit the dust on both 
sides; at Asp'ern 45,000, and Wagram 44,000; 
at Peipsic the appalling total of 92.000 men. 

Put the nations thus struck staggered 0.0 
more than a big ship which has lost a topsail, 
and a few years replaced the missing canvas. 
The blow may brace both conqueror and vic- 
tim ; indeed, it is almost a commonplace of 
modern history to find that the rejuvenation 
of some state "fallen into senility dates from 

a crushing defeat in the field. Put these, we 
admit, arc considerations too "remote from 
common use." The fiery furnace is no in- 
viting "cure"; these may be the luck of Ayc- 
sha, and not of Shadrach, Meshach and Abed- 
nego in the flames. Moreover, modem man, 
however stoutly he cotdd bear his losses, both 
human and financial, cotdd in no wise endure 
that "mass of moan" which rises like an echo 
as the sound of a great combat grows still. 

That "mass of moan"! How it has droned 
interminably over Europe from generation to 
generation of broken hearts. It is that which 
is the unendurable thought today. The voice, 
ot woman grows louder momentarily, for the 
most part a futile sound full of rage and fury 
signifying nothing, but in one respect most 
purposeful, and that is in her denunciation of 
war. She, at least, with keener eye, has 
marked its orbit, and, with sight perhaps less 
penetrating, sees nothing but folly in its per- 
iodic reappearance. If ever the red star shall 
be "shot from its. sphere," it will be her doing, 
for good or ill, not necessarily, to repeat, for 

It is not hard to trace the subtle infection 
of womahishness which is bringing nearly the 
whole world's manhood to womanish points 
of view on manly matters, especially to that 
essentially womanly cui bono attitude before 

which war has always trembled like a guilty 
thing surprised. When women have stopped 
war, and we believe that they will do so, they 
will be "emancipated" indeed, for they will 
have annihilated the only thing that bars 
them from equality, or, perhaps, superiority to 
the fighting men. 

This present war already bears their im- _ 
press. The great cry which has gone up from 
all the Western nations is. stripped of its cant, 
not a cry of reprehension, but of sheer timid- 
ity, of sheer feminine dread of damage, of 
interruption to comfort, business and waxing 

What a farce are these jeremiads by peoples 
armed to the teeth and rattling the sabre at 
ev-ry trifling opposition to their will ! If 
they have learned to fear war, they have not 
learned to avert it. Meanwhile their shrdl 
expostulations with the breakers of the peace, 
their nervous chatter among themselves, _ IS 
drowned in a deeper, and. to him, who "saith 
ha! ha! amongst the trumpets," a nobler 
sound. Around Adnanople rises again the 
great diapason which has sung over so mafy 
stricken fields. The Turk, aroused from his 
lethargy, has thrown down his pipe, and 
rushes "at last into the arena over the door of 
which is writ ten -for how many thousands? — 
"All hope abandon ye who enter here!"

nowned scientists who studied out this prob- 
lem through flowers and animal life, and Miss 
Derick endeavored to show the same would ap- 
ply to human beings. As every organism is 
changing in the plant it is reasonable to believe 
the same variation applies to the human race. 
Once we believe this feasible there is no longer 

fny desire to put aside as ridiculous the idea 
hat qualities acquired during life are handed 
$>wn. There is no reason to think a drunk- 
ard marry ing a highly moral and abstemious 

mate would result in a family offspring all 
drunkards or all temperate, following the 
strongest attribute in the parent. These qual- 
ities do not blend together, they can be separ- 
ated and are separated, only to appear in a 
later generation. 

Miss Derick believed that heredity was the 
cause of so many failures and the weak-minded, 
the parent of some earlier generation domin- 
ating the unfortunate who was not responsible, 
and who would sooner or later come to the 
recorder's court unless something were done. 

One very great aid wjs compulsory educa- 

tion. The separation of defective or weals- 
minded children from the strong was consid- 
ered of vital importance, so many feeble- 
minded children are in the same school with 
brighter and healthier children trying to keep 
up a standard they cannot reach, retard- 
ing the progress of the strong.' Coming 
down to the adult, the laws regulating the en- 
try into Canada of immigrants was dealt with., 
"It is a crime to let men enter the country be- 
cause the railways are to be built and labor is 
needed," declared the speaker, who thought 
our immigration laws should be stricter.

Ambitious Schema to Improve- Banff 

Prepared by Dominion Parks 


"Bcautlfui Banff" la already an ac- 
oepted terni among those who have 
been fortunate enough to see all the 
rugged grandeur ;ttul wonderful moun- 
tain scenery of this natural park, but 

what Banff Is destined to become In 
the near future, according to the plans 
which the government has afoot at 
present, will make such famous spots 
us STosexnlta and Yellowstone Parks 
look to their laurels. 

The plans Which Dominion Parka 
Commission./ Ilarkin has In mind will 
make Banff into a regular Arabian 
Night's fairyland, a panorama Which 
onco seen can never be forgotten, a 
national playground of which a nation 
may well be proud. 

The magnificent caves In the vicinity 
will be illuminated by electric light, as 
well as all the buildings connected with 
the bath house and hotel. 

T?ltm* are also ready for a most elab- 
orate ana completely equipped bath 
house which will cost $100,000; it will 
be 160 by M *eW imd will compriii 
swimming pools, bathing houses, dress- 
ing rooms, everything to enable the 
visitors to derive benefit from the cir- 

Plans are also being talked over for 
cutting dovfcn some of the wood which 
clothes the mountains so densely to 
give it more of a panoramic view which 
at present cannot be attained on ac- 
count of the density of the timber. 

A little later a meana of tranaporta- 
M eai in th e M ae a t a trim o r elfintric 

railway, will In ail probability be fur- 
nished, so that those who are not born 
mountain climbers may be enabled to 
see Banff without so much actual bard 
power for a railway and also for the 
electric lighting will have to be gener- 
ated and that is what is being flfO»*d 
on at present. ,< 

Nor is Banff the only spot to receive 
special attention In the near future; 
conditions are to be improved whefever 
possible in many parks throughout the 
Dominion. , .' 


That the suffrage frenzy of the hour 
extends to the -winged world is a pro- 
position supportable by circumstantial 
evidence to be found at present in the 
British Columbia museum, where th« 
mounting is just being, completed of 
half a dozen handsome pheasants which 
the most experienced fowler at first 
glance would declare to be cocks-^and 
therefore legitimate trophies of the 
hunting season. 

Each has the fine long tall, the ir- 
ridescent collar, the brilliant colorings 
of the male bird, yet none of the six 
boast spurs, and dissection has shown 
each and all to be of. the protected sex. 

The curious phenomenon has fre- 
quently repeated itself in British Col. 
umbla of late years of barren hens 
forthwith assuming the plumage of 
the cocks — and getting shot in conse- 


u Require More Proof Than This? 



Were we to come to you with our own bare statement, "Hardy Bay is a good in- 
vestment," you might doubt it. You might ask: "Who are we?" Now we know 
that Hardv Bay is a good investment because we investigated it very thoroughly 
before we 'decided to place it on the market. Were you to spend as much time 
and money investigating Hardy Bay as we did, you would be convinced, too. But 
we realize that is not possible and so we will prove to you why Hardy Bay is a 
good investment. _ ... , 
Here is the absolute proof. Thirty of the biggest and best known men in Britwfc 
Columbia have bought property at Hardy Bay, running into 
hundreds of thousands of dollars. We give you their names 
and their addresses. " You must agree with us thatjhese men 
are well known and that they muat own property at Hardy Bay. 
or we would not dare »ay ao. If you have been in British Co- 
lumbia, only a few months you will have recognized in this 
list many man who are constantly, spoken of as 
the BIG MEN of thla province. Now, if men of 
their importance, wealth, keen business Judg- 
ment and knowledge of condition* have 
*5flS»»i5V bought and are still buying property at 
Hardy Bay, U meaBl PUt UNB Tl gWC rr 




If you wait until the BIG 
TAKEN PlaACE you'll be too 
late. You'll be too late like 
thousands have been at Prince 
Rupert. They could have bought 
with a hundred dollars what ♦.hey can 
not touch today with several thousand. 

We don't say that Hardy Bay will make ^p ^_ 


or in a week's time, or in a month. But 
Hardy Bay will make BIG PROFITS FOR 
YOU if you buy at the low prices today and are 
willing to wait a reasonable time for your profits. 
If you have learned your lesson from your friends 
who have made money in Prince Rupert, send us the

Bear in mind another thing. 
Men like these make

That meana a safeguard against 
overload in|— More resiliency-- Leu* 
danger of blowout*-- And, with the 
average Car, a 25% increased tire 

IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN— like many another skid— quite harmless. 
But a ditch happened to be there, and the result was serious. 

Why Risk Skidding at all? 

The Goodyear NON-SKID tread is a test- 
ed skid-preventer. 

Not a hard, lifeless cover— but a flexible gripping 
succession of pure rubber blocks— diamond-shaped. 
Every angle and edge holds the road tenaciously against skidding. 
As the centre blocks wear, those near the side come into play as skid 
registers. Broadened at the bottom, the blocks distribute the weight 
of the Car evenly over the tread surface. Tire and tread, vulcanized 
the one to the other, form a combination almost puncture-proof. 
There is no loss of resiliency — as with bars, letters, and other 

projections. The cush- 
iony effect of the plain 
tire is retained. 

Our Tire Sales 
Total Over a Million 

representing some 200,000 
cars. These colossal figures 
mean something.

Automobile Tire " would interest

Much Business Done on New 
York Exchange Yesterday 
With Result That Closing c '" ^*^- 
Was Above Previous Night 

NEW YORK, Nov. 1« .— The market ex- 

:f#jWefliced' considerable pressure during 
the first hour this morning on selling 
which appeared to bo largely for short 

On the down turn the volume of 
liquidation for outside account was not 
of sufficient extent to warrant the ele- 
ment committed to declining prices to 
press their advantage, and as a conse- 
quence when short covering was at- 
tempted prices rallied easily, with the 
closing in most instances above last 
night's level. 

The manner in which the foreign mar- 
K e tB rec a i ' vea V'e an n ouncement o f un 
extra session of congress did much to- 
wards inspiring confidence, and It ap- 
peared to be the concensus of opinion 
that how business inte rests realize what 
fa before them plans and commitments 
. can be governed in such manner as will 
tend to relieve the burden of changes in 
the tariff schedules. 

On the whole, during the past few 
days It has been quite noticeable that 
present holders of securities have not 
taken fright at the various predictions 
oi distress circulated by the eleventh- 
hour bears, ,
